Series: 20 giftable books 2020

We get a lot of messages about what we "should" be prioritizing over the holiday season, but have you stopped to ask yourself what matters most to you? With her five Lazy Genius principles, my friend Kendra will help you live according to what matters and let go of the stuff that doesn't. I make much use of her "decide once" principle when times get stressful, and her guide has helped my whole family plan our holidays around what matters most to us. With her friendly voice and style, Kendra illustrates each principle with stories from her own life. It's a great book to set yourself (or a loved one) up for success in the new year.

About the Book

Being a Lazy Genius isn’t about doing more or doing less. It’s about doing what matters to you.

“I could not be more excited about this book.”–Jenna Fischer, actor and cohost of Office Ladies podcast

The chorus of “shoulds” is loud. You should enjoy the moment, dream big, have it all, get up before the sun, track your water consumption, go on date nights, and be the best. Or maybe you should ignore what people think, live on dry shampoo, be a negligent PTA mom, have a dirty house, and claim your hot mess like a badge of honor.

It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed by the mixed messages of what it means to live well.

Kendra Adachi, the creator of the Lazy Genius movement, invites you to live well by your own definition and equips you to be a genius about what matters and lazy about what doesn’t. Everything from your morning routine to napping without guilt falls into place with Kendra’s thirteen Lazy Genius principles, including:

– Decide once
– Start small
– Ask the Magic Question
– Go in the right order
– Schedule rest

Discover a better way to approach your relationships, work, and piles of mail. Be who you are without the complication of everyone else’s “shoulds.” Do what matters, skip the rest, and be a person again.
