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.


#019: Leaders Stay Stimulated

I've said before that leaders must read. Likewise, leaders need to find way to stay stimulated, engaged, involved, inspired, and motivated.

She who motivates others must be able to share that which motivates her, too.

Maybe it's art. Maybe it's curling up with a novel. Perhaps you like to listen to TED talks or take in a local lecture. You could like to make pottery, watch a documentary, get lost in nature, or find your flow in a yoga studio. Whatever it is, leaders must stay creatively, intellectually, emotionally, and physically stimulated.

Leadership is hard. You need to go to the well of motivation for replenishment and refreshment if you are to help others on their journey, too.
