For some reason, I'm struggling to write this.
I can write about several different things today.
One avenue is to cover essential concepts in life philosophy, or investing, or persuasion. This past week I've done this.
However, today, well... today is different.
See, I have 25 minutes and 22 seconds to finish the thing you're now reading. Reason being: I've spent most of my time over the past week on these daily writings. I do not think it wise for me to try and sustain this. There are several reasons for this:
I've accomplished about 10% of what I set out to complete this week. And 10% is being generous.
What I'm trying to accomplish involves installing a shoe-box-sized collection of handwritten notes. I'm working on installing these into my offline brain.
In doing this, I hope to achieve my most pressing goal: To uncover deep insights about perennial concepts--primarily in the disciplines of mass persuasion, life philosophy, and the future of technology. Humanity's greatest thinkers have written about such disciplinary fields for ages. Therefore, I find it necessary to create a system supporting complex connections between concepts.
With such a system, I hope to provide my customers (subscribers of The Scott Scheper Letter) with the best content they've ever read in said fields. My goal is to unleash content that delivers more value than New York Times Bestsellers. And...
My goal is to do this every single month... And I'm absolutely certain I can.
I shall now dive into working on this so that one day, I have the pleasure of sharing The Scott Scheper Letter with you.
Peace and love,
Scott P. Scheper
P.S. I ran out of time almost ten minutes ago, bah!
P.P.S. Also, I offer presumptuous thanks for your graciousness in accepting that I can't spend all day on my daily writings. I've enjoyed the hell out of it. I'm 100% serious about that. However, I owe it to my future customers and subscribers of The Scott Scheper Letter to invest most of my time in delivering something of priceless value for them.
