What is it?

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method that can be used for any task. For many people, time is an enemy. The anxiety triggered by “the ticking clock”, especially when it involves a deadline, leads to ineffective work and study habits which in turn lead to procrastination.

The aim of the Pomodoro Technique is to use time as a valuable ally in accomplishing what we want to do in the way we want to do it, and to enable us to improve continually the way we work or study.

The Goals

The Pomodoro Technique will provide a simple tool/process for improving productivity (your own and that of your team members) which can do the following:

The Basics

At the beginning of each day select the tasks you need to complete and put them on the TODO list above.

Start working:

  1. Start the Pomodoro timer
  2. Work until the Pomodoro rings
  3. Take a short break (3-5 minutes)

Keep on working, Pomodoro after Pomodoro, until the task at hand is finished. Every 4 Pomodoros take a longer break, (15–30 minutes).
