Hello and welcome, I'm Larry G. Maguire, writer. I study psychology, read, lift weights, 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 human performance and creativity.
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 a job well done for me.
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 please note, this site does not exist to sell you life hacks. I am not out to fix anyone. Apply what you read, or don't–entirely your call.
I appreciate your time and attention, so if you derive value from this content, consider supporting my work.

Do You Love Your 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. Their work seems to be transactional and soulless, a means towards an ultimate end. Yet, there are others who are fully engaged with daily work. People who use the words “love”, “appreciate”, and “happy” to explain how they feel about their 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.
