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.


 

Understanding Limits

As Sarah Peck so wonderfully points out, cars have brakes not so they can go slow, but so they can go fast. Gravity doesn't just hold us down, it shows us how marvelous it is when we fly.

Heartbreak reminds us that love is so rare, so precious, and so important.

Age reminds us that wisdom comes with the price tag of time.

Winter makes sure that spring burst forth with vibrancy and color when it's time.

The thing that you think is holding you back may seem like a nuisance. But it's also reminding you - showing you - that hard work, dedicated effort, and intelligent action will surely have a reward.
