'Core' Work



I was leaving work one day and a close colleague of mine was leaving at the same time. As we were walking down the stairs I noticed he was munching an apple and had literally eaten it to the core!


I jokingly said to him...


“I see today you’re doing core work today”!


We often banter and I had to milk it…


“So Tuesdays is when you work your core?!”


We had a good laugh and yet underneath that we both know and seek to demonstrate that:


EVERY DAY IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR CORE WORK.


To return to a very useful concept you could liken core work to Deep Work.


DEEP WORK = TIME X INTENSITY (OF FOCUS) (Cal Newport).


Consider an ‘apple’ you’ve got for today in your studies or other life areas that requires core work.


What is it + how much time + focus would it require today?


How many bites is it going to take to get it down to its core?


For example, it could be 4 x 15 minute timed sessions to complete a study session or 1 x 90 minute deep work session with a 5 minute break at the half way mark.


Whatever the apple and regardless of how many bites it might take to get to the core…you can get there, one bite at a time.


With ARETE,


Sean


p.s. Core work need not only happen on Tuesdays nor should it.
