Larry G. Maguire
The Sunday Letters Podcast is the weekly audio newsletter from organisational psychologist Larry Maguire on the meaning & purpose of daily work and our paradoxical relationship with it. We explore how we may break free from tiresome means-to-an-end labour and take command of their own working lives. Topics include solo working, careers, entrepreneurship, small business economics, society and culture. Content follows the written newsletter, which goes out to subscribers every Sunday.
Episode details

Today is St. Patrick's Day, Lá le Phádraig as Gaeilge, and although the day of celebration has little religious relevance these days anywhere in the world, it has become a good excuse for a celebration. Not least because we are a small nation and it allows us to take the world stage for a while. My family and I went to the City today to see the parade. It was very cold but we enjoyed it nonetheless. I felt for the participants though, some very very obviously feeling the cold. Anyway, on today's show, I wanted to talk a little bit about success. I was listening to Ray Hefferenan's Irish Songwriter's Podcast on iTunes. In particular an episode with singer-songwriter Harry Hoban. Harry had a view on success and I thought I'd share it. He claimed he didn't write for the listener, he instead wrote for himself. --- Send in a voice message:
