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.


That Thing You Do

As it turns out, if you want to be known for that thing you do, you don't have to do it all the time. The best poets, carpenters, leaders, and teachers are also wives, dog walkers, vacationers, and parishioners.

There's more to life than what we do, but we can get caught up so much in our doing that we neglect our being. I often have to keep this at the forefront of my mind, especially as I work on Leadership Does. All of our doing - even doing the important things that leaders must do - is for naught if it's not also making us better people.

Do what you want, but only if it allows you to become who you must.
