Lunch Break with Kendra Adachi of the Lazy Genius Collective
In this episode, we chat with Kendra Adachi of the Lazy Genius Collective. We discuss what it means to be a lazy genius, why it is important to set goals that you look forward to, and Kendra shares exactly how long it would take her to watch everything in her Netflix queue (hint: the answer is in years)!
What you'll hear:
- The story and vision behind the Lazy Genius Collective
- Kendra’s recommendations for what to read and watch in 2016
- How we are using resolutions to distract ourselves from the real issues
- Why we should create a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days
- That Avril Lavigne actually had two albums (what?)
Can I quote you on that?
- “I want to help people be a genius about the things that matter, and lazy about the things that don’t." Kendra
- “If I watch T.V. for three hours a day, every day, it would take me six years to watch everything on my queue.” Kendra
- “Whenever I would set that goal in front of me, that I needed to look a certain way, what I was saying to my soul was, 'you aren’t enough right now. The way you look right now is not enough for yourself or other people.'" Kendra
- “Setting goals and making resolutions in and of itself is not a bad thing, but so often we're doing it because A) we think we should and B) because we think that who we are and what we’re offering the world is not enough.” Kendra
- “The ‘fresh start’ air of January is a really beautiful thing, but it can be really distracting from what’s going on deep down.” Kendra
- “It is such a relieveing concept to be able to set goals and have things in your life that you can look forward to.” Kendra
