Hi , who would have thought November would be upon us already and and that a tomato 🍅 can increase your productivity?
The Pomodoro Technique® was invented in the early 1990s by Francesco Cirillo, a developer and entrepreneur and was named after the tomato-shaped timer Cirillo used to track his 25-minute intervals of focused work time.
I've been trying it this week, in a bid to focus my mind and clear the distractions.
The basic premise is that you do 25 minute blocks of work (using a timer to keep you honest), each followed by a 5 minute break (away from the screen).
You do 4 blocks of this and then take a longer 30 minute break.
It sounds so simple, but knowing you have a limited window of time to get something done really works wonders. How many times have you found yourself stretching out tasks so that they fill the time that you have, however long!
Give it a go and let me know how you get on.
