I am a fan of the convergent device. I try to use my Android phone for every task imaginable. I mean, if I could use it to beam a wave of energy at my bowl of oatmeal in the morning, cooking it right in the bowl at the table, I would! I am always on the lookout for new apps that are useful to me in my day-to-day activities. Enter Pomodoro.
Pomodoro Technique is a time management method that can be used for any kind of task. For many people, time is an enemy. The anxiety triggered by â€œthe ticking clock,â€ especially when a deadline is involved, leads to ineï¬€ective work and study habits which in turn lead to procrastination. The aim of the Pomodoro Technique is to use time as a valuable ally in accomplishing what we want to do, in the way we want to do it, and to enable us to continually improve the way we work or study. www.pomodorotechnique.com
The basic use of the Pomodoro Technique is to work for 25 minutes and then take a 5 minute break. Each 25 minute session is called a Pomodoro (Italian word for tomato). After 4 Pomodoros take a longer break. The premise here is that we are more efficient when we work in bursts, concentrating on one task at a time. It’s a highly effective way to manage one’s time.
