The “POMODORO TECHNIQUE”, a magic bullet for your productivity

Have you ever heard of the “Pomodoro Technique”?
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s and it’s named after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that he used.

The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks (4-5 minutes).pomodoro technique, productivity

The intervals are known as “pomodori”, the plural of the Italian word pomodoro for “tomato”.
The method is based on the idea that frequent breaks can improve mental agility and ability to focus.

Plus, this improves exponentially your productivity. The secret is just to set the timer for 25 minutes and to stay extremely focused on whatever you are doing (studying, working…) for this interval, avoiding all distractions.

(!) Remember: no matter what happens, you have to avoid ANY distraction that may interfere with what you are doing, and focus.
When you will start using this technique, it will surprise you: in 25 minutes you will do what you now normally do in one hour!
Can you imagine the amount of work done after 4 pomodori (100 minutes)?
