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.


 

Let the Questions Grip You

Back in May, a friend asked me a question. It was one I couldn't answer then and I'm still wrestling with it.  

Nearly every week since then, I've tried to find an answer for him. I felt like until I answered it, I would be haunted by it.

But then I found out that being gripped by the right question is better than finding an answer. Wrestling with a tough question can put us on a journey with deep meaning, something we might not have undertaken had we been able to pull up an answer on our phone.  

So don't fear a question for which you don't have an immediate answer. Sink into that question and let it grip you. In its grasp you may learn more about yourself than you thought possible.
