Hello and welcome, I'm Larry 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. Sunday Letters is my members-only newsletter and focuses on the meaning and purpose of daily work. I write about leadership, well-being and performance at work, technology and its impact on the future of work.
The ideas I share are fundamental to doing work that has meaning and purpose rather than merely transactional. Find out more below about Sunday Letters' content. I appreciate your time and attention, so if you find value in the content, find out below how you can support this work.

Sunday Letters Discussion Forums
How can we work free? How can we do work of our own choice and out of our own inherent interest? Maybe you've already found it. The Sunday Letters discussion forum is a space where we can discuss the meaning and purpose of daily work and how we might do work of our own design. Visit the discussion boards and join in the conversation.
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.
