The Lazy Genius Way (Book Review)

(This post contains affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

The Lazy Genius Way by Kendra Adachi is a book that will prompt you to embrace what matters, ditch what doesn’t and get stuff done.

It’s a productivity book, packed with personal stories and anecdotes. The book feels more relevant and achievable than Thursday is the New Friday. It’s about mindset. Mindset is not my thing – but I did not find this book ‘woo’ or difficult to get behind.

Basically, it’s about prioritizing what is important to you and doing that. The book shows you how and I loved it. It’s also pretty funny. Her description of kitchen chaos after school is exactly like our home but the point of this book is not to be like anyone else but to create a way of getting things done that works for you.

Mostly it is a set of principles for the home, combined with a mantra for the stressed out working parent (and I felt it was aimed at the ‘moms’). It’s a set of guidelines to help you feel OK about reclaiming time: part mindset stuff, part practical guide, part critical friend telling you to get your s*** together and that the little things don’t matter – and she loves you anyway.

As you read through the experiences and stories shared as part of the 13 principles for being a lazy genius, you will find yourself nodding along.

I like how each chapter ends with one small step, but throughout the book there are many more examples of things you can do.

Unlike other productivity books that prescribe a particular method or a template to fill in so you can reach peak productivity, The Lazy Genius Way encourages you to create a method that works for you, using universal principles to shape what is actually going to be sustainable, useful change in your life.

It felt very accessible and a refreshing change, but as a lot of the examples are home-life based, you will have to extend the principles to your work life. It’s doable, but there aren’t a lot of work-related examples.

Just so you know, there are some references to Christianity which felt sometimes like they came out of the blue – I wasn’t expecting religion to pop in the book and you might not either.

And now excuse me while I go off to clear the kitchen counters.
