Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

#010: Just Stop

You should quit something this week.

Seriously.

Give up on something. A behavior, a product line, an event, a friendship, an idea, a dream, or a routine.

Something that’s not working for you. That’s draining your energy more than supplying it. That’s taking advantage of you. That’s not helping. That’s abusive, stagnant, negative, or mean. Something that's not profitable, productive, or promising.

Better to stop short and say you didn't make it all the way than to keep running over the cliff.

Bonus:
Need help quitting? Find a quitting buddy and give up together.
