Boost your Productivity with this "Tomato" Technique
Do you frequently find yourself getting distracted while trying to work? Do you get overly optimistic when it comes to how much you can get done in a day? These distractions and miscalculations could sometimes derail our whole work day and leave us feeling unaccomplished and dissatisfied. Well, I know this as I have been through the same problem before and, what helped me was “The Pomodoro Technique”.
It is a time management method that involves breaking down your work into small(manageable) 25-minute intervals, called "Pomodoros"(which is Italian for Tomato), with short breaks in between.
Here's how it works:
Decide on a big goal you want to accomplish, then break it into smaller more manageable chunks of tasks.
Set a timer for 25 minutes and work on the task until the timer goes off.
Take a short break of 5 minutes.
Repeat steps 2-3 for 4 "Pomodoros".
Take a longer break of 15-30 minutes after completing 4 "Pomodoros"
By breaking your work into smaller chunks, you can avoid the feeling of getting overwhelmed by your big goal rather you can concentrate or stay focused on the task at hand and, avoid burnout. In addition, with regular breaks, you'll stay refreshed and motivated.
Give the Pomodoro Technique a try and see the difference it can make in your productivity.
