TITLE:

Morning-After Pill for Cats

FROM:

Scott P. Scheper

Downtown San Diego, CA

TO:

You*

START TIME:

Thursday 10:51 a.m.

Dear Friend,

There I found myself, this past Saturday morning, with the Google search results displayed on my phone.

The phrase I searched for? It was simply this:

Is there a morning-after pill for cats?

Yes, I found myself literally searching this on Saturday morning.

So what happened?

Well, if you've been following my story so far, you know I decided to move to a new area in San Diego (an area twenty minutes east of downtown). I moved into a place that's four bedrooms, which nicely accommodates myself, my fiancé and our two-year-old daughter. Plus, I've made one of the rooms into a full-on library! It's covered floor to ceiling with books (I'll show it off at some point).

Anyway, I'm officially moved in!

I moved into the new place on Friday.

And that's when things got, well, uh, let's just say, "a little frisky."

You see, during the move, I needed a place for my two cats to stay. Otherwise, they might escape due to the movers constantly going in and out of the house.

If you didn't know this by now, then now you know: I'm a cat person (though I'm also a fan of dogs… and pigs). But really, I'm a cat person.

I have two cats.

Both are of the most immaculate breed there is: the ragdoll breed.

My first cat is named Brodus Maximus Scheper, The Sixteenth. He is a stud.

My second cat is a princess named Fiona. She's alright.

Anyway, Fiona is a little over a year old and… well, my lazy ass never got her spade. I mean, why would I? There was no need to. Brodus is neutered and I lived in a building in downtown San Diego. They were never exposed to other cats.

Well, they were never exposed to other cats until this past Friday night, that is…

You see, on Friday night my cats were staying down the road at my fiancé's apartment.

They've stayed there before, and there was never any issues.

However, on Friday night, little miss Princess Fiona apparently was in heat.

That night, we left the patio door open for little miss Fiona because the cats love hanging out on the patio. There's a six-foot wall barricading the patio, which has always kept things isolated and safe.

Well, apparently, in the night, Fiona had a little visitor. A ruggedly handsome country gray cat. In retrospect, it makes sense how he found her. She was in heat, bellowing all night (like the annoying little princess she is).

I'll spare you the details, but the next morning, after lifting up Fiona's tail, I came away knowing one thing: Princess Fiona and her young country beau consummated their magical night together.

This is how I found myself, on Saturday morning, searching for a morning-after pill for cats on Google.

What I learned is that there is a morning-after pill for cats. But it's not failsafe, and it can be dangerous for the cat.

So there's your random piece of knowledge for the day.

For this reason, the morning-after pill for cats didn't seem like a good option.

After discovering this, I was forced to accept the reality: pretty soon I'd not only be living with my fiancé, our daughter, a bunny, and two cats… I'd also probably be living with eight more cats!

Faced with the choice of despair or acceptance, I chose acceptance, and went about my day.

But lo! Later that day my fiancé calls me (she had been well-apprised of this situation).

She had just gotten off the phone with the vet and had some good news. If we take Fiona in on Monday to get spade, it's early enough wherein she won't get pregnant.

Note: I realize writing this now, I've somehow, someway, surfaced the taboo topic of life's point of conception to my audience of readers (who are more interested in learning, reading, writing, the Antinet, and knowledge development). And less interested in hearing about feline contraception and its moral implications. But stick with me, I promise this is going somewhere (I think)!

Anyway, I booked the appointment to get Fiona spade on Monday. My justification was I think it's better for Fiona's life, and even the (potential) kittens' lives. We're already over-inundated with stray cats; introducing them to a world where they may get passed along from person to person isn't the best situation. Plus, it gives the current cats looking for a home a better chance of being adopted! (That's my story, and I'm sticking with it).

All of this chaos meant one more thing…

The crazy week that I was about to have, was about to get even crazier!

I would not only be continuing to get settled into my house. I would not only be taking my cat to the vet for an emergency operation to get spade. I would also be introducing, for the first time, a top-secret program I'm extremely excited about.

You see, this week, I spoke with a very select few of my Antinetters and shared with them this top-secret program I've been working on for quite some time.

I've only shared the details with a handful of people, and I intend to only share it with a few more.

The top-secret program I've developed is not some lame-ass 5-week cohort group course that teaches the Antinet, PKM, or knowledge development.

In fact, the Antinet is a very small piece of what I'm talking about. After all, I've already provided a ton of free content to help you create and build your own Antinet.

That's not where the magic is. The Antinet is a very small, tactical piece of what we're really striving to create. I've said this before, and I'll say it again: the Antinet and any PKM system is really just a means to the end.

One of the ends involves becoming a writing machine.

Becoming a writing machine means developing a system that churns out deep, well-processed thought. It churns out research papers, and books that are actually worth reading. I'm talking well-footnoted books, thesis papers, and dissertations. What I'm talking about helps you churn out material containing something new and interesting to say. In brief, I'm talking about teaching you how to become a prolific writer.

But even becoming a prolific writer (by using a system like the Antinet) is just a means to another end. Another destination.

What many of us really want is to spend our days pursuing our true passions. We want to read, think, and write all day (without it being a pain).

We want to make a living doing what we love, saying what we need to say, and doing it in our unique way.

Many of us want community and connection as well.

So what do we do?

Some turn to 5-week group courses that promise to teach how to become a better writer (for the low price of $7,000). Spoiler alert: the advice is basically to just sit your ass down in front of your computer and write. Such courses don't even teach a system as powerful or effective as the Antinet (which I share for free)!

Others turn to 5-week group courses promising some game-changing productivity workflow. They teach a shiny-new acronym-laden framework for organizing your digital life (for the low price of $6,000).

Others turn to 5-week group courses promising how to connect your thoughts using {insert latest notetaking app} (all for the low price of $3,500).

Let me make myself perfectly clear: I am not interested in creating a 5-week group course.

Why?

Because such things don't result in a life-changing transformation.

Not only do these courses promise to teach you some "game-changing" new system, they promise to give you access to a community of fellow classmates.

Here's the truth: You will never get your need for connection and community fulfilled by one of these courses.

The community that you want to build (and pay attention) is this: Your Own Community!

Yes, the best type of community you can create is your own community. Your own tribe.

You want a tribe of like-minded people who fit the traits and characteristics of your own highest values. You want a community who will take your ideas seriously.

You want people who will read your work in earnest. People who will write to you via email (or even handwritten letters). You want a group to encourage you, to give you feedback, and introduce you to new ideas. All of which helps you in your intellectual quest to develop a fulfilling piece of work!

This, my friend, is the type of community you want. It's something that can't be bought via a group course. This community must be developed.

This type of community-development I speak of is something I've become rather good at. I've spent my previous professional life learning and developing this craft. I've gotten so good at it that it's afforded me the lifestyle of doing what I love to do every day: learning, reading, writing, and providing value to the types of people I value (those committed to growth and learning).

I call this type of lifestyle, "the neo-intellectual life."

This lifestyle involves a specific framework and practice. It involves carrying out knowledge development in a certain way. It also involves building a tribe—a community—of people who you value. It involves other things as well, but I won't get into detail on them now.

As I said, this week I've begun sharing this top-secret program with a select few of my Antinetters.

I have more people on my list who I'll be reaching out to soon. However, my overall goal is to keep the number of people I work with very, very small.

I'm not interested in doing a 5-week group course right now (or maybe even ever).

I want to have a transformative, life-changing impact on the people I work with.

I'm looking to create success stories and case studies of people who I've helped transform. My goal is to over-deliver so much with such people that in the future, all I have to do is point anyone else who wants to work with me to these past clients (to see their results).

If you're an entrepreneur, freelancer, consultant, or professional stuck doing work you hate, and if you're looking to make a shift into more purposeful work, then I'm talking to you.

If you're an aspiring writer looking to create prolific work (without being a starving artist), then I'm talking to you.

If you're a Ph.D. candidate or an academic researcher looking for help writing a dissertation or paper and you're also interested in making a lucrative living outside of academia, then I'm talking to you.

Now, listen up, pay attention:

Up until Sunday, August 7th at 11:59 pm, I am accepting applications to work with me one-on-one.

Again, I am only going to take on a small number of clients (at most five, and I already have one).

If you are interested in working with me one-on-one, and you would like to shift your work (and life) into one that is more intellectually fulfilling, then I invite you to apply.

If you are interested in working with me one-on-one to become a learning machine, a writing machine, and a research machine, then I invite you to apply.

If you are interested in building a neo-intellectual life for yourself, then I invite you to apply.

Below is the link where you can apply:

https://forms.gle/rYnAXUfB6EPKLu6D8

After submitting your application, if I feel like it's a fit, I'll follow-up via email and set up a time for us to chat.

If you've read this far, and if you're committed to building the neo-intellectual life, then I invite you to apply.

Here's the link again to the application form:

Applications will be accepted until Sunday, August 7th, at 11:59 pm.

Warm regards,

And stay crispy, my friend.
