#191 - Naming What Matters in 2021
The turning of the calendar doesn’t change everything, but it does change something. It changes our outlook, even the tiniest bit. We are no longer in one of the hardest years, if not the hardest year depending on your life experience, we’ve ever faced.
So today I want us to start small in our own lives where we are and think through what is going to matter to each of us in 2021.

This has revolutionized my life!
Kendra is like the Mum I never had, walking me through all the steps to being a grownup and helping me learn the basic skills I feel like I should already have. Her steps are simple, logical and easy and she always makes me laugh. Thanks Kendra, forever grateful. I also LOVE your book btw.
Love this podcast!
The Lazy Genius podcast is one of my most-recommended podcasts - so many episodes have helped me think about things differently and reframe my mindset. Kendra is the best friend that I’ve never met and can speak so clearly and with such integrity about how to approach so many different aspects of life. I look forward to each episode. And her mantra also helps when there’s an episode that isn’t as relevant to me: I don’t have to listen if it’s not right for me, right now. So freeing!
My new mantra
It may just be that I am the one who is late to the party, but the idea of being a genius about the things that matter and lazy about the things that don’t is so ground breaking for me. It has me frequently assessing what matters in my life (this is crucial) and giving myself permission to invest far less energy in the things that don’t make that list.
Kendra is funny and real, and I love love love her!
