Hey folks how are you getting on? Welcome to episode number six of The Larb. This is the podcast show for artists, creatives, creative people, creative entrepreneurs you might say. This week in episode six I’m taking a look at the secret to success. It’s something I’ve written about quite a bit on larrygmaguire.com, and this week my partner in conversation, Tom Carter and I get into a conversation about this.
All this striving for success is exhausting. I’m in my 43rd year on this earth and this has certainly been my experience. Most people I have ever spoken to about it agree that there’s something in this striving for success that just doesn’t fit. The reality of our experience seems to be completely different from what we’re told we need to do, what we believe it takes to get what we want.
We’ve grown up with rules and regulations, a preset route to monotonous normality disguised as life success and so it doesn’t have to be that way for them. The greatest challenge for us parents is to allow our children follow their interests and let that take them wherever it will. Only then can they ever have a chance of creating something special and unique according to their own values.
What Is The Key To Happiness and why are are so many of us looking for it? What’s so damn hard about being happy? Well maybe the answers are closer than we think. This world we live in is full of noise and distraction. The lure of bright shiny things can be great fun but it keeps us from the truth.
What Does It Take To Become A Successful Full Time Writer? Truthfully, I don’t know… I’ll tell you when I get there. If you are like me, you sit alone at your computer every spare moment. Writing, researching, marketing, working on your site, trying to improve your process any way you can.
I’m suffering from information overload. I’ve heard enough time management advice and read enough stupid fucking life hacking articles to last me several lifetimes. Our focus should on that one thing that energises us, that gives us pleasure and enjoyment. It’s not about being great at managing your time doing shit you’d rather not do.
