The Pomodoro Technique

I’ve been using the Pomodoro Technique and the results are outstanding. I had heard of the Pomodoro Technique. Twenty-five minutes of work, five minute break. Seemed pretty simple.

But it’s so much more than that. It’s given me a new relationship with time. I can talk about, “I’ll do a Pomodoro for that”, or “that took two Pomodoros”. I’ve gotten so much more done.

At home, I’m doing more housework. Twenty five minutes is enough time to get a lot done, and is short enough that I don’t feel worn out. Without a great deal of effort, I am now getting more chores done and doing them more completely.

At work I’m doing more tasks and the frequent breaks keeps me out of rabbit holes. And at days end, I have a record of what I worked on all day.

With the Pomodoro Technique, I have more available productive time, and I better visualise time, as a sequence of Pomodoros.
