Pomodoro Technique

The Pomodoro Technique 3: Pros and Cons

I typically clock eight to nine Pomodoros a day. You can easily calculate, that even with nine Pomodoros a day, that is four and a half hours of work. With the break time excluded, on an average day, I manage to stay focused for 3 hours and 45 minutes. Out of an eight hour working day that doesn't seem too much, does it?

The Pomodoro Technique 2: First week, an average day

The first part of the Pomodoro Technique series contained a quick description of the Pomodoro Technique's key features as I see them. There's a couple of areas that the book does not cover thoroughly and which I see many people ask about. Most often it's the questions about putting the technique into action, dealing with interruptions, filling the individual sheets etc. To give you an idea how to use the technique in an actual working environment, here is my experience with it over my first working week of 2011.

The Pomodoro Technique: What is it?

If you're like me, you've been struggling with motivation, productivity and procrastination your whole life. There's no easy cure for these problems and I don't have one either. Though, what I came across recently, gave me so much hope, that I had to spread the word and share my experience after only one week of applying it into my work life.

This story deals with what is known as the Pomodoro Technique, a simple time boxing technique with planning, tracking and recording features, very easy to put in practice even for people like me, who have almost lost the hope of ever beating the habit of procrastination.
