Being a lazy genius means learning that there is no ‘right way’
What does it mean to be a Lazy Genius? First and foremost, it means learning that to make improvements to our lives, there is not one, single route that works for everyone. The author walks us through the 13 principles we can follow to help us identify what really matters and avoid wasting energy on all the rest. It is a way for us to improve our lives and increase personal and professional satisfaction, without getting stressed by the world around us.
We all have very different priorities, and we need to stop comparing them with the priorities of those around us. This comparison simply drains our energy, it makes us feel trapped and causes us to waste time pursuing things that other people consider important. So we end up neglecting what truly matters to us.
Forgetting about everything that matters to society, our family, our friends, the TV, and anyone else who cares to have an opinion, is important, so that we can really focus on what counts for us: this is the objective of the Lazy Genius philosophy, that can help us complete small goals by finding the right balance between overdoing it and not doing enough. That balance lies somewhere in between committing to one thing wholeheartedly and abandoning a project as soon as we think it might not bear fruit. Let’s see how.
