The Pomodoro Technique

The Pomodoro Technique was invented by Francesco Cirillo in 1999, and he gave it the name Pomodoro by the tomato-shaped clock he used to time himself with.

It helps you get a lot done, in little time, efficiently and enables you to Read and Retain!

I have been using this technique now since September of 2020.

My grades at school increased an entire grade point in all of my classes.

I went from averaging 1-2 pages a day to writing about 3-4 pages a day using The Pomodoro Technique.

The idea is that any task(s) can be broken down into short, timed intervals called Pomodoro’s.

How to use The Pomodoro technique:

  1. First, you will need a timer, and nowadays, people usually use their phones.
  2. Figure out the task it is you want to accomplish
  3. Set your timer to 25 minutes.
  4. Work on the task for 25 minutes and avoid consistently checking the timer.
  5. When the timer goes off – take a 5-minute break – make sure you physically get up at this time. Do not take the break in the same spot you were working.
  6. After 4 Pomodoro cycles, take a more extended break of 20 minutes.
  7. Then repeat the cycle from step one again until satisfied.

That is all you need to know about The Pomodoro Technique.

Now, get to work!

Limit all distractions!

The point of The Pomodoro Technique is 25 minutes of complete and an entire focus on the task at hand.

Put your phone on airplane mode or do not disturb!

Stay off of social media at all costs!

Do not work on anyone else’s time but your own!

Knowledge is Power!

The Pomodoro Technique

If someone calls or visits you, negotiate a time to call or see them on your breaks or when you’re done.

When is it best to use the Pomodoro technique?

The Pomodoro Technique works well for boring class assignments. Commit at least one short 25-minute focus session with the project.

Most after getting one session down, they are more committed and willing to finish the work. It works well for reading those arduous long textbook chapters for class.
