What is the Pomodoro Technique?
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management technique invented in the early 1990s by Francesco Cirillo and was named after a tomato shaped timer he used to trach his work when he was a university student.
The idea is very simple: When faced with a large task, break it down into smaller individual tasks, break those tasks down into short time intervals (called "Pomodoros") and space them out by short and long breaks.
This makes you work in short sprints to make sure you are consistently being productive. And you also get to take regular breaks, which helps improve motivation and keeps you creative.
How to Use It?
The Pomodoro Technique is extremely easy to implement. Here's how to get started with it, in six steps:
  1. Choose a task you want to accomplish.
  2. Start the Pomodoro Timer.
  3. Work on the task until the bell rings.
  4. Take a short break (3-5 minutes).
  5. Take a long break after every 4 completed Pomodoros.
