I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to be more productive. How can I manage my time better? How can I do more things in less time? I heard about the Pomodoro technique a long time ago but never really looked any further. Until I heard about it again last month. I decided to do a bit of research on it.
Here is how Wikipedia explains:
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. These intervals are named pomodoros, the plural in English of the Italian word pomodoro (tomato), after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that Cirillo used as a university student.The method is based on the idea that frequent breaks can improve mental agility.
I'm not sure if 25 minutes is enough for me, I feel like when I start something, I need a bit longer to finish. Stopping at 25 minutes would probably stop me halfway through and wouldn't help much. But I wonder how long do I actually keep it focused uninterrupted. I think I would like to give it a try. Maybe 50 minutes? Maybe 40? Many entrepreneurs use this method and I think it's worth looking into it.
Have you guys ever tried this method? I would love to hear your opinions. Let me know on the comments or social media.
I'm using this app here to try it out. You can set how many minutes you want to work straight and how many minutes you want to break for...
