Pomodoro Technique

Pomodoro Technique


Francesco Cirillo’s Pomodoro Technique (TM) is a productivity booster and helps with time management:

  1. Select a task to be accomplished
  2. Set the Pomodoro (a kitchen timer or even the timer on your phone) to 25 minutes.
  3. Work on the task until the timer rings.
  4. Then put a check on your sheet of paper to mark where you reached.
  5. Take a short break (around five minutes).
  6. Every four 'Pomodoros' take a longer break (up to an hour)

To keep track of your 'Pomodoros' and your breaks, try this free online tomato timer
