The Pomodoro Technique

The Pomodoro Technique

Becoming more productive is less about the things you do, than the things you don’t do. That’s why I love the Pomodoro Technique, because it allows me to do less of the things I shouldn’t do.

If you’re like me, I get easily distracted. Especially because I work out of a co-working office where everyone is on a different schedule. Staying focused on my work can be challenging. I am always looking for ways to stay focused, and this technique is one of my favorites.

Coined by Francesco Cirillo, the system “Pomodoro” was after the tomato-shaped timer he used to track his work as a university student. The best part about it – it’s simple: When faced with any large task or series of tasks, break the work down into short, timed intervals (called “Pomodoros”) that are spaced out by short breaks.

This allows you to be more productive, in less time. I love that.

So, watch the video to understand more about how I use this technique, and to get my recommendation on an app to help keep you honest. If you want even more information check out: Pomodoro Technique
