    #228 - 5 Ways to Organize Your Books

    We’re talking about five different personalities of book organization, so hopefully, you’ll see yourself in one of these. We all have different challenges when it comes to organizing our books, but there’s really no one-size-fits-all approach. Having a lot of books doesn’t make you a hoarder. Not having towers of bookshelves doesn’t make you less of a reader. So let’s Lazy Genius how to organize your books.

    #227 - How to Know What to Read Next with Anne Bogel

    You guys, we have Anne Bogel on the show today to help us be Lazy Geniuses about deciding what to read next! She hosts her own podcast aptly called What Should I Read Next? And I’m delighted she’s here with us today to talk about planning our fall reading lists, how to get unstuck when we’re just not into a book, and what her new reading journal is all about.

    #226 - How Batching and Bags Can Get You Out the Door

    In the last episode in a quasi-series on getting out the door, we’re going to use Courtney Cleveland’s method of packing for vacation to help us get out the door with all the right stuff (and at the right time!). And the magic of Courtney’s method is the combination of batching and bags. Let’s jump in.

    #225 The Shoe Episode

    #225 The Shoe Episode

    We are going to plow through common challenges we all face with shoes and apply some Lazy Genius principles to help make those challenges easier. Obviously, we can’t cover every possible shoe scenario, but I am hoping to cover some common ones to help cover our bases and also to give you some practice on applying principles so you can do it for yourself and your personal shoe challenges.

    #224 - When Things Don’t Go According to Plan

    #224 - When Things Don’t Go According to Plan

    This episode was inspired by last week’s episode The Lazy Genius Gets Out the Door. One of the reasons we all have trouble getting out the door is things not going according to plan. There are so many variables, so many things we can’t control, that shift the whole plan.


    There are three steps to flexibility, and we’re going to talk about them today.
