Pomodoro Technique

πŸ… Work with the time that you have, rather than against it

This popular time management method asks you to alternate β€œPomodoros” (focused work sessions) with frequent short breaks.

This sustains concentration for longer.

πŸ“ How to

  1. Pick a task

  2. Set a 25 minute timer

  3. Work on the task until the time is up

  4. Take a 5 minute break

  5. Every 4 Pomodoros take a longer 15-30 minute break

πŸ… Why Pomodoro?Β 

Francesco Cirillo developed the method in the late 1980s.

Struggling to focus on his university studies and completing assignments he asked himself to commit to just 10 minutes of focused study time.

Encouraged by the challenge, he found a pomodoro (italian for tomoato) shaped kitchen timer, and the Pomodoro technique was born.
