The Pomodoro technique is a productivity & time management system where you constrain each task by a set amount of time, allowing no distractions while you work on it. After each set, you take another set amount of time as a break.
The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks.
Truthfully, I don’t use Pomodoro all the time, but when I have tasks that need uninterrupted focus, I do.
My favorite tool for the job is Pomodone
, which integrates with a whole host of to-do and project management tools. You can customize the length of each Pomodoro (I usually do 40 minutes instead of the standard 25), set up two-way syncs with your app of choice, and track your progress.
If you find yourself getting distracted, I recommend giving the Pomodoro technique a try, and Pomodone is my tool recommendation if you find the technique helpful for you.
