Show Notes-

This week on Cultivating the Lovely, host MacKenzie Koppa chats with Kendra Adachi. Kendra is a writer and podcaster, as well as a wife and mother to three beautiful children. Today MacKenzie talks with Kendra about her new book The Lazy Genius Way and what it means to make it easier to do the things that bring you to life.

  • What the basis is for the “Lazy Genius Way”
  • Figuring out what matters to you and what you need to make the most of your time
  • What MacKenzie loves about this book and why she thinks you need to read it
  • Letting ourselves be honest about what it means to be a person with unique needs and wants
  • Recognizing and naming what matters to you

If you don’t name what matters underneath it all, you are just going to keep trying and being tired.
