TDL136 Applause & Criticism
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.
In today's episode of The Daily Larb Podcast, I'm discussing the challenge of managing Applause & Criticism of our work. I'm in two minds you see. One part of me wants to connect with other people through the work I do, I want to bring about change and be a positive influence. There is a part of me that wants to be relevant. Then there is the other part that doesn't care. One is deep and quiet, it likes to be alone and unbothered by others, and the other wants to be heard. It's a strange dichotomy of feelings. But then there is the part that sees all of this. Maybe it simply the nature of the self. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sunday-letters/message
