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.


 

Where Are You Adventuring?

We each probably have a friend who is out searching for obvious adventure. He or she is trekking across the globe, climbing a mountain, skydiving, or exploring somewhere uncharted. It's easy to hang the "adventurer" label on them. This seems to be how they live, defined by what adventure they're presently on rather than their job.

Sometimes we also get to go on an adventure, taking an exotic vacation or booking the trip of a lifetime. And then when it's over, it's back to work.

Helen Keller shakes us out of our routine and assumptions by telling us: "Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing at all."

We don't have to book a one-way ticket to remote airports to have an adventure. We can start a company, have another child, move to a new city, end a relationship, take up a hobby, try yoga, sit down and finally write that book - the list can go on.

The examination for you has to happen within. What is it that could be your greatest adventure?

Truth be told, it's probably not a vacation. 

Your greatest adventure should be life itself.

So - how are you living?
