The Mary Marantz Show

May 18, 2021

Do you pick up every ‘how-to’ magazine, trying to cobble together life hacks and productivity strategies only to be left still feeling overwhelmed? Perhaps you are tired, flat out exhausted, from trying to live up to society’s standards of having to do it all.

If you can relate, then this episode is going to be the lifejacket you need to stop drowning under the chaos of life.

Today, Mary is joined by podcaster, blogger, and author of “The Lazy Genius Way: How to Embrace What Matters, Ditch What Doesn’t, and Get Stuff Done”, Kendra Adachi. Kendra believes that living by a list of "shoulds" is exhausting and leaves zero extra time for just being a person!

Over the years she learned that if her worth was based on how well she did everything she should do, then she would be a terrible human being! So, she quit trying so hard, and started being a genius and the things that matter and lazy about the things that don’t.

On today’s episode, Mary and Kendra discuss:

  • How we don’t need a new list of things to do, but rather we need a new way to see;
  • The reasons why we are worn out from both trying too hard and not trying at all; and
  • How social media has conflated order with being fake and chaos with being real.

After listening, you will:

  • Be equipped with the right tools to discern what truly matters in your own personal life (not what should matter by the world’s standards);
  • Feel empowered with Kendra’s ‘decide once’ strategy - ready to breath a little easier and live a little lighter; and
  • Leave ready do your future self a favor by asking ‘the magic question’.

If you are ready to embrace what matters, ditch what doesn’t, and get stuff done, then you will not want to miss this powerful episode!
