Hello and welcome, I’m Larry G. Maguire, writer and thinker. I study psychology, read, lift weights, run, drink coffee, ponder the nature of reality and write – pretty much in that order 😬. The material you can expect from me 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.
I’m currently training as a psychologist with a specialist interest in human performance and the psychology of creativity. The ideas shared here are fundamental and can be applied to all walks of life, including work, play, creativity, business and sport.
