POMODORO - EFFECTIVE TIME MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUE

Updated: Mar 22


POMODORO - EFFECTIVE TIME MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUE

The #PomodoroTechnique is a #timemanagement method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. It is designed to improve productivity and focus by breaking work into intervals, typically 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. The technique is named after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that Cirillo used when he first practiced this method, as "pomodoro" means tomato in Italian.


Here's how the Pomodoro Technique generally works:


  1. Choose a task: Select the task you want to work on.

  2. Set the timer: Set a timer for 25 minutes, known as one "pomodoro." During this time, you focus solely on the chosen task, working without any distractions.

  3. Work on the task: Use the designated 25 minutes to work on your task with complete concentration. Avoid any interruptions or distractions.

  4. Take a short break: When the timer goes off after 25 minutes, take a short break of around 5 minutes. Use this time to relax, stretch, or do something unrelated to work.

  5. Repeat the process: After the break, start another pomodoro by setting the timer for another 25 minutes. Resume working on your task with renewed focus.

  6. Long break: After completing four consecutive pomodoros (25 minutes of work each) and taking a short break after each, take a longer break of about 15-30 minutes. This break allows you to rest and recharge before starting another series of Pomodoros.
