It is a revolutionary system for managing time. Its purpose is to race beside the clock to reach the set deadline within the time. Created by Francesco Cardillo, the Pomodoro technique was first introduced in the 80’s when the man was in his college. He faced trouble to concentrate and remain at one task at one point in time. So, Cardillo purchased a tomato-shaped kitchen timer to divide his concentration into smaller segments. As the tomato is called Pomodoro in the Italian language, his style of dividing time to work productively is called the Pomodoro technique. The technique is simple and I can swear by it as I practice the same. My ability to focus has improved tremendously. The Pomodoro technique aims to enhance the productivity by improving your focus.

What is the process involved in this Pomodoro technique? It is very simple. The Pomodoro is a 25-minute slot for you. Concentrate in a focused way followed by a break of 5 minutes. The process is to make a checklist for the most important tasks of the day. Then, set a timer for a 25-minute slot and start working on each task as per the priority. As soon as the timer rings, you just have to stop it. Take a 5 minutes break and again set the timer for 25 minutes. This process is followed 4 times and then, you can take a well-deserved break of 25 minutes.

The Pomodoro technique helps you to track your improvement and get an idea of the time taken by you to accomplish each task. With a regular practice of the Pomodoro technique, you can soon get an idea of how long do you take to complete each task. This lets you plan your tasks accordingly and increase your efficiency to do your work faster in a productive way.
