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.


 

The Price of Pipers is Rising

Someone calculated what it would cost you to actually give all the gifts mentioned in the "12 Days of Christmas" song (because it's the Internet and of course they did). If you have an extra $114,000, you might be able to pull this off.

Of course, not many people are giving pipers or lords or doves this time of year (or any time of the year). The point is that there is a value to things. 

Your time. Your attention. Your affection. Your talent. Your sweat, tears, hopes, and focus. It's all worth something.

This time of year - and every time of year - spend wisely.
