Op-Ed: 02 Ways we lazy genius our lives


Welcome back to another episode of Op-Ed! This episode was all about what we call “Lazy Genius” our lives, loosely based on the principles in Kendra Adachi’s newest book The Lazy Genius Way: Embrace What Matters, Ditch What Doesn't, and Get Stuff Done. In the book, Kendra lays out thirteen different principles giving you various ways in which you can Lazy Genius your own life in order to embrace what matters to you and essentially, be lazy about the things that don’t. We are big fans of Kendra aka The Lazy Genius and so we thought her framework would be the perfect vehicle to discuss our own routines, systems, and other principles laid out in her book like Decide Once.

The Best 31 Days of the Year

As we wrap up our first official weekend of harvest season, I took some time to reflect on our accomplishments and the beginning of a new season.

New seasons are exciting, but they don’t come without growing pains. The growing pains have been settling in so hard this week that even a bottle of Tylenol can’t shut them down.

It’s no lie that everybody loves fall and everything that comes with it: from the crisp air to the beautiful foliage. However, adjusting from the fun and fancy free schedule of summer to the lock down the hatches and get all you can done before winter comes can come with quite a bit of stress and angst if we let it.

There are only so many hours in a day and so many days in a week. And sadly, only 31 days in October. Focus on the things that matter the most to you and take care of the rest in January when the snow’s flying.

It’s the most beautiful time of the year.

Savor it.

Let’s make the most of those 31 days.
