Productivity :: Time Management :: The Pomodoro Technique

What is it?

The Pomodoro Technique™ is a way to get the most out of time management. Turn time into a valuable ally to accomplish what we want to do and chart continuous improvement in the way we do it.

How does it work?

  1. Take a timer or a software timer
  2. Choose a task to be accomplished
  3. Set the Pomodoro to 25 minutes (the Pomodoro is the timer)
  4. Work on the task until the Pomodoro rings, then put a check on your sheet of paper
  5. Take a short break (5 minutes is OK)
  6. Every 4 Pomodoros take a longer break
