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.


 

A Defining Quality of a Leader

A lot of times, we're led to believe that leaders are limitless, fearless beings with nothing more than a dream and a will to see that dream come true. It's always easy, amidst the glitz and glamor that sometimes accompanies public leadership, to forget that leaders are not solo acts. Remember: there are no solo acts. All of us - all of them - need help. Leaders are just those that are quicker to ask for it.

That's my take in this short video. I share a story of my daughter asking for help when putting blocks together. Hopefully it can remind all of us that we're not individuals trying to make it on our own. We're incomplete teams trying to find our mates so we can play this great game of life together.
