What is it?
The Pomodoro Technique is a simple method for time management. By breaking down your work into small intervals (traditionally 25 minutes in length) you can improve your work and study habits and thus be more efficient and productive.
The goal is to conclude as many sessions as possible during your day. It is important that during one session you fully focus on your task and avoid any outside distractions. If somebody or something tries to distract you, inform the other person that you don’t want to be disturbed, schedule a time when you can get back to them and do so in your breaks.
How does it work?
1. Set the Timer to 25 minutes
2. Select your Combo and concentrate on your task until the sound stops
3. Take a break of 5 minutes
4. Start another session
5. After 4 sessions, take a longer break of 15-30 minutes
The main advantage of this methodology is the fact that you avoid burnouts and it will keep you sane during your day. The frequent breaks allow you to relax and recharge mind and body and restore your energy. By using this system you can increase your efficiency in your workflow and get things done.
The method is highly flexible. If for your tasks you need more time or if you want to have shorter or longer breaks, you can just adjust the time accordingly. It is important that you try things out in order to see what works and what not. Find your own rhythm and try to improve your process while moving forward.
