People Committed to Growth and Learning
First off: I only consider you a friend if you're someone who's committed to growth and learning.
I also only consider you a friend if you're not a buzzkillington. A buzzkillington is someone who doesn't laugh while watching Family Guy.
If this isn't you, no problem. You can quit reading now.
Otherwise, let's get started.
My name is Scott P. Scheper. I reside in San Diego, California, and I am committed to one thing: helping people grow.
Right now I help people grow through my recent foray into the niche field of notetaking. My goal is to help people unlock the genius inside of them to create genius-level work in their chosen domain.
I have an eclectic background and, consequentially, a diverse audience. I've done many things in my career. I've done the whole internet marketing dream (i.e., I've made boatloads of money while sipping rum on Caribbean beaches and paying 4% in taxes). I've started several companies and have had several successes and several failures. I've launched a cryptocurrency that has since become quite popular (with a market cap of $1.145 billion).
Blah, blah, blah.
These things were adventures, and they were also fun for a while. But the thing I've never stopped doing, and the thing I continue to do today, is one thing: I take notes using notecards.
It may seem silly and antiquated, but I am a fervent believer in the power of using handwritten notes to develop one's mind.
More recently, I have decided to explore a niche within the field of knowledge management—this niche centers around a thinking system used by the most highly revered social scientists of our time. The system is called a Zettelkasten (which means notebox in English).
For the past year, I have been on a journey. The journey centers on exploring this system in detail. The reason why I've become fascinated with this system comes down to two reasons:
First, the purported power of the system. The zettelkästen creator, Niklas Luhmann, produced 70 books and over 550 publications in a short amount of time. The secret weapon he used to do this was his Zettelkasten. Such a system intrigued me, as I have ambitions of creating genius-level work related to various fields throughout my life. A system that can assist me with publishing genius-level work is of great intrigue.
Second, the idea of this system has become popular in recent years and continues to grow in popularity. However, after exploring both digital tools and the analog form, I have concluded that the analog form is perhaps the most critical reason its creator could produce so much prolific work. Unfortunately, the masses are unaware of this effect.
Anyway, I'm trailing on. I'll wrap things up now.
The website you've stumbled upon today is, what I believe, the most impactful website you'll come across all year.
Here's why: I believe that there is an inner genius inside every person waiting to be unleashed. Whether it be a book, a publication, research paper, doctoral thesis, dissertation, music piece, or whatever creative work you can think of, I am committed to helping you get it live, and to get it done the right way—the hard way—the only way.
If this interests you, I'd like to invite you to join me on this journey.
Over the following weeks, months, and years, I'll be publishing content and work related to my mission—to inspire people committed to growth and learning. My goal is to give you the tools needed to create genius-level work in your chosen domain. That's it. Simple.
If you'd like to be a part of this journey, I have one—and only one—thing that you'll want to do, that is this: join me by joining my email list below.
On a regular basis, I will be writing to you (I'm thinking weekly—but frankly, I have no idea how frequent yet). I'll share with you any of the latest pieces of content I publish (be it YouTube videos, blog articles, guest posts, or whatever). I will also share with you any free guides. Hell, I'll even share free books that I decide to publish if my publisher allows it. No promises; I have not finalized anything yet. But I'm thinking of publishing sample chapters of the book I'm working on revolving around analog Zettelkästen (what I call The Antinet). I'm also thinking of putting together a free guide—The Myths of Zettelkasten: 21 Misinterpretations of The Zettelkasten Method That Will Hurt Your Creative Output and Result in Burn Out.
Again, these are just examples of things I have planned to share with my community—which will soon include you (assuming you join my email list).
Last, I will never send you crap from a do-not-reply email address. I will write to you from my own email address! You can reply, and we can have a conversation if you desire. No promises on me responding in a timely fashion, though. I spend most of my time offline.
Anyway, I've written enough. I'm cutting myself off now. Seriously.
