Brilliant in its simplicity and effective ….
Pomodoro technique was invented by Cirillo Francisco in 1992. Ingenious Italian found his inspiration in the kitchen timer. The shape of a tomato was inspiration for the name of this technique. With all my heart I recommend this method because it is simple and EFFECTIVE.
The rules of the Pomodoro technique by Cirilo are:
- make a list of tasks to be performed. Determine the order of a priority and always start with the most difficult.
- Set the timer for 25 minutes – it is the time of one Pomodoro, no less no more. If the job is too big, take a few Pomodoro to perform on it. If the task is too short will make something so that you have 25 minutes filled with work.
- Work on the task continuously for 25 minutes. Work for so long, until the timer rings.
- Then Mark the task as completed. Wow! You have worked for 25 minutes at full concentration so take a five minutes for a break. You deserve it. Use this time wisely – make a coffee or tea, drink some water, do some exercise, or listen to your favourite songs, write SMS do anything that you associate with relaxation .
- After 4 Pomodoro take a 15 minutes break. You worked for 4 Pomodoro, so reward yourself with longer break.
Pomodoro Technique by my way ….
Modified Technique Pomodoro I use to maintain my house clean and tidy. I have a two year old child who wants attention so I Setting the timer for 20 minutes and focus on my things to do. When the timer call – 10 minutes I spend with my son: We watch fairy tales in TV, read books, or building the blocks. 10 minutes passed and I again go back to 20minutes of my duties. 20 minutes passes then again I got time to spent with my son. With this method, I am doing my and by the way, and the son feels my presence and is more willing to cooperate because he knows that even as I currently do not have time for him in a few minutes we will do something together.
