Another Day of Writing, Another Day of Self-doubt!


Scott P. Scheper

Downtown San Diego, CA



Dear Friend and Fellow Antinetter,

It's me, Scott Scheper here, writing to you on a Friday evening after a fine day of writing.

By fine day of writing I mean the usual: self-doubt, denial, and wondering who in the heck is even going to gain value in what I'm writing.

In other words, I'm doing things right!

Anyway, today I finished a section on how the Antinet Zettelkasten system was deliberately chosen by Niklas Luhmann.

In reality, Luhmann was wary of the computer science implementation of memory. Real memory, true memory and human memory mirrors what is more closely found in the Antinet.

I can't wait to share all of this with you.

Sometimes I feel like my book is becoming too massive. I'm 300 pages into the thing already and probably only 30% done with it! It's a beast.

I feel like the book is also a bit too theoretical.

However, I may be being too hard on myself. Whenever I go back to read the sections I previously wrote (and the sections which I think are too theoretical), I end up finding them really interesting.

But, maybe that's just me. I geek out over this stuff—over sharpening and growing your mind through using a pen-and-paper thinking system!

One of the ways I hope to mitigate the risk of my book being too theoretical is to include a nice how to section for building your own Antinet.

My strategy for doing this centers on doing 1-on-1 coaching sessions to teach people how to actually build their own amazing version of the Antinet.

From these sessions my goal is to refine the way I teach the material so that the how to content in the book is super clear and simple.

Anyway, I'm excited for you to read the book and I can't wait to grow this revolution. We're part of the crazy few who are interested in using analog systems to grow the mind.

Our movement is growing and it's going to become something way bigger than we realize.

I can't wait!

That's all I'm going to say for now.

Actually, I lied.

One more thing: if you want to be a part of helping me develop the content for my book, then consider signing up for a personal 1-on-1 coaching session with me.

Here's the details:

If you want me to personally coach you (1-on-1) in building your own Antinet Zettelkasten (or if you need help with your current one), then please view this application:

Antinet 1-on-1 Coaching Application with Scott

I'm doing these 1-on-1 coaching sessions in order to help refine and simplify my content teaching how to build and work with your own Antinet Zettelkasten.

This 1-on-1 coaching isn't a long-term thing, so if you're at all interested, check it out and give it a whirl!

Warm regards,

Scott P. Scheper
