I know a lot of Best of Both Worlds listeners love The Lazy Genius, Kendra Adachi! And it makes sense. We all want to be geniuses about what we care about…and lazy about everything else.
In this week’s episode of BOBW, I interview Kendra about some of my favorite Lazy Genius principles. How can we “Decide Once?” What does it mean to “Start Small”…and what has Kendra started small on? What exactly is the “Magic Question?”
We discuss our caveat to the Magic Question (it’s mostly magic but there are limits). Then Kendra shares her recent experience of being quarantined as Covid ripped through the whole family (they’re all doing fine now). She learned a lot about herself — such as the importance of articulating exactly how she was weak under stress. We should all identify how we’re weak under stress. It can help us not alienate everyone around us.
Please give the episode a listen! And check out The Lazy Genius podcast, and Kendra’s book, The Lazy Genius Way. She also has a new book, The Lazy Genius Kitchen, coming out this spring, so be sure to follow her on Instagram so you’ll be the first to get your copy.
Also: Last call for October’s BOBW online meet-up! Patreon community members can join us tonight (10/26) at 8 p.m. eastern on Zoom for our discussion of all things childcare. So if you’d like to participate, please join today!
