Although our readers come from across the globe, it is our duty to shed light on the incredible life work of certain individuals. This newsletter is dedicated to one such individual: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Over a long career on both sides of the bench - as a relentless litigator and an incisive jurist - Justice Ginsburg has helped America (and the world) to see that discrimination on the basis of sex isn't about an abstract ideal of equality; that it doesn't only harm women; that it has real consequences for all of us. It's about who we are - and who we can be. 

I urge all of you to find someone that you can look up to, learn from them, and follow your dreams so you can make the world around you a little bit better. You are all capable of great things.

Thank you so much for being a user of Digestible Notes!

Things You DON'T Need to Succeed Academically

1. Motivation
  • As students we think that we need motivation to want to do our school work and to do well in our classes. This is not true. Where it is definitely good to have an underlying purpose for why we are at school, motivation is not needed. It is a fleeting emotion, so there will be times when we are motivated to want to study and then there will be times that we don't want to study. Instead, we need self-discipline to do the important work that we need to do, when we say we will do it.
2. Tips & Tricks
  • The thing is tips and tricks are just that, they are tips, by definition they are not fully what we need. They are just a part of what we need. It would be similar to going to an ice cream store and ordering a chocolate ice cream on a cone, and just getting the cone. Instead, what we need are full systems, we need the ice cream and the cone, not just the cone, not just tips and pieces of the puzzle.
3. The Fancy Strategies
  • A lot of us can name the learning theories and strategies such as the Feynman technique, chunking, pomodoro, etc., but never actually put them into practice. Try ditching the fancy terminology, and focus on implementing their underlying strategies. Actions are important!
4. A Quick Fix
  • We see this a lot in weight loss right: "This MAGIC PILL will make you INSTANTLY lose 20 pounds and shed your love handles". We fall into this trap in studying too: "This TRICK will INSTANTLY turn you into a straight-A student". The thing is, quick fixes don't work. Just like anything else, it takes time and constant progress to turn around your academics and to implement good systems and strategies. Success doesn't happen overnight.
5. To Be Smart
  • Another thing that pains me to see is when students right off their ability to succeed because they think they are not smart or aren't good at a subject. You do not need to be smart to succeed; hard work and smart work are much more important. Remember, hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard!


Constitution & Formalities of a Trust
As with most things in law, there are certain formalities that must be satisfied before a trust can be created. These notes explore these requirements and how equity can help when the legal requirements have not been met.
