Hello and welcome, I'm Larry G. Maguire, work & organisational psychologist. I read, fling a few weights around, run, drink coffee, ponder the nature of reality, and write – pretty much in that order. The material here is taken primarily from the fields of psychology, philosophy, and the traditional sciences, blends with my own particular life experience, and maintains a focus on the human condition.
I write to share ideas that I think are worth sharing. Ideas about the meaning of life, the purpose of daily work, and the nature of reality as we perceive it. If you render a benefit from these ideas and can apply them, then that's good.
The ideas shared here, I believe, are fundamental and can be applied to all walks of life, including work, play, creativity, business and sport. But you will note, that this site does not offer life hacks and I am not out to fix anyone. Apply what you read, or don't–it's entirely your call.
I appreciate your time and attention, so if you find value in the content, find out below how you can support this work.

How Do You Feel About Daily Work?
This is a topic in which I am deeply interested. My research to date suggests that large numbers of adults are at odds with their work. Work seems to be transactional and soulless, a means towards an ultimate end. Yet, there are others who are fully engaged with daily work. How does daily work make you feel? Can you take 2 minutes to tell me? Your responses help shape the content here on the site.
