Pomodoro technique and its power to improve productivity
Pomodoro technique is a very powerful tool to help you focus and get more tasks done.
Created by Francesco Cirillo, it is a time management technique that by breaking down tasks in 25 minutes increments, it aims to keep your mind fresh to maximize productivity during that short burst.
In between 25 minute focus times (called pomodoros) , you take a short 5 to 10 minute break. After four 25 minute “pomodoros”, you take a longer break 15-20 minutes.
My family have been using this technique for over a year now and it has been very helpful enhancing our focus and productivity.
It has been so helpful that we developed an app and a website.
It has a significant advantage over a regular physical timer in that you can adjust times for your pomodoros and breaks as well as have reports and stats to keep track of your progress.
