Regeln für eine Welt voller Ablenkungen

Ständige Ablenkung ist heute das Hindernis Nummer eins für ein effizienteres Arbeiten. Sei es aufgrund lauter Großraumbüros, vieler paralleler Kommunikationskanäle, dauerhaftem Online-Sein oder der Schwierigkeit zu entscheiden, was davon nun unsere Aufmerksamkeit am meisten benötigt. Sich ganz auf eine Sache konzentrieren zu können wird damit zu einer raren, aber wertvollen und entscheidenden Fähigkeit im Arbeitsalltag. Cal Newport prägte hierfür den Begriff "Deep Work", der einen Zustand völlig konzentrierter und fokussierter Arbeit beschreibt, und begann die Regeln und Denkweisen zu erforschen, die solch fokussiertes Arbeiten fördern. Mit seiner Deep-Work-Methode verrät Newport, wie man sich systematisch darauf trainiert, zu fokussieren, und wie wir unser Arbeitsleben nach den Regeln der Deep-Work-Methode neu organisieren können. Wer in unserer schnelllebigen und sprunghaften Zeit nicht untergehen will, für den ist dieses Konzept unerlässlich. Kurz gesagt: Die Entscheidung für Deep Work ist eine der besten, die man in einer Welt voller Ablenkungen treffen kann.

~Why practice taking exams?~ Siegel's Essay and Multiple-Choice Questions and Answers are designed to show you how to handle law school examination questions. Siegel's have been used by thousands of law students during the past decade, and any one will tell you why -- doing practice exam questions is the key to exam success. To ace your exams, you must (1) memorize blackletter principles and rules of law for each subject, and (2) understand how those principles of law arise within a test fact pattern. One of the most common misconceptions about law school is that you must memorize each word on every page of your casebooks or outlines to do well on exams. The reality is that you can commit an entire casebook to memory and still do poorly on an exam. Reviewing hundreds of student answers has shown us that most students pretty much know the law. The ones who do best on exams understand how legal problems (issues) stem from from the rules of law which they have memorized and how to communicate their analysis of these issues to the grader. Working through Siegel's essay and multiple-choice questions and answers will give you the practice you need to achieve superior scores on your law school exams. Each essay question comes with an extensive, well-organized model answer. Every multiple-choice question comes with a detailed answer that tells you not only why the correct answer is correct, but why each of the other choices are wrong, so you can better understand why you're choosing the wrong answer. Brian Siegel is a Columbia Law School graduate and is the author of How to Succeed in Law School and numerous works pertaining to preparation for the California Bar examination. Professor Siegel has taught as a member of the adjunct faculty at Pepperdine School of Law and Whittier College School of Law, as well as for the UCLA Extension Program. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
