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.


 

Convincing Yourself

Beware of situations in which you must convince yourself. Talking yourself into something is rarely a great sign.

Whether it's going to an event, choosing whom to date, or taking that new job, if the conversations in your head only point to reluctance, it may be a sure harbinger that things may not end well.

It may be easier to convince yourself that something better will be coming along. If so, wait for that.
