The weekend is here and it’s time to focus. We’re suggesting that you use the pomodoro technique. “The Pomodoro Technique was invented in the early 90s by developer, entrepreneur, and author Francesco Cirillo. Cirillo named the system ‘Pomodoro’ after the tomato-shaped timer he used to track his work as a university student.”
All you’ll need is a timer:
First, turn your phone notifications to the “do not disturb” setting.
Choose a task to accomplish.
Set your timer to 25 minutes for deep focus. (Google has one for free.)
Work until the timer goes off, and take a short (up to five minute) break. You can use this time to check your email or phone notifications.
Once you’ve completed 4 Pomodoros, take a longer break.
