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.


 

How to Move On

Before you move, mourn

Lament that it didn’t work out. 

Cry a little. 

Shrug your shoulders, rethink a decision or two, wonder what could have made it work. Acknowledge the shortcoming before you get to going. 

This mourning - and its reconciliation - is really the first step towards what’s next. You must own, name, and perhaps even celebrate the failure. 

Otherwise, you may repeat it until you call it out
