Foundational vs surface effort

Effort (work) can be placed on the pyramid. One that touches the raw material of life, content that cannot be substituted or easily generated. Soft work is repetitive, it is easily trainable, bcs there are tutorials, its more downstream to the substantive work. e.g. Peter Singer is doing susbstantive work. Journalist who are writting about him is doing more softer work.
