OVERVIEW:

Author and blogger Kendra Adachi joins me to talk about how you can live well by your own definition, according to the way God designed YOU – and equips you to be a genius about what matters and lazy about what doesn’t.

QUOTES & NOTES:

Some ducktape here, a paperclip there, maybe we can make all these things work together to make a meaningful life. You can’t hack your way to a meaningful life. 

We can LAZYGENIUS anything. Work, closet, relationships, laundry. 

“Everything can be lazygeniused because everything matters or doesn’t matter.” 

Everything can have this applied to it:

    1. Embrace what matters

    2. Ditch what doesn’t. 

    3. Get stuff done. 

Not doing these things well, doesn’t mean you’re not a good woman. People thrive differently. Don’t spend the energy doing something you’re not wired for because it will deplete your resources for something you ARE really good at. 

Kendra’s 13Lazy Genius principles, include: 

Decide once

Start small

Ask the Magic Question

Live in the season

Live in the right routines

Set house rules

Put everything in it’s place

Let people in

Batch it

Essentialize

Go in the right order

Schedule rest

Be kind to yourself

We are so tired. We have this constant reel going of “do the right thing, make the best choice” and it takes so much out of us. So sometimes naming what we are exchanging our spinning for can help devalue the spinning itself. And we realize this doesn’t matter as much as I think it does. 

Life matters. And we don’t really let ourselves let life matter in the richest way because we are spending our energy on things that don’t matter. 

Stop comparing and living our lives and live our own lives wholeheartedly and let other people live their lives so wholeheartedly. 

“Live your life, your way, embrace what matters, ditch what doesn’t and also…get stuff DONE.”
