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 Vulnerability of Honesty

Honesty may be hard - the real kind of honesty (wait, is there a fake honesty?) where you lay your soul bare or ask a tough question, all while out on a limb praying that an honest answer doesn't come like a chainsaw and you start to fall. 

Here's what I mean:

Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is to be honest with yourself and others. But it could be the best thing you do for your career or your relationships. 

And, honestly, that's how it often works: the hardest things we do are the best things we do.
