There are many distraction around us which could hinder us from doing our priorities, for example our smartphones and social medias. Therefore, it is important for us to have exceptional time management skills. For me, I find it very hard to write religiously because most of the time, I spend more time reading that writing, where I’m supposed to divide the time equally.
Just last week, I learned about Pomodoro Technique. It is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo. It’s been around since late 80s, so you might have heard it somewhere. Timer is required. You may use an ordinary kitchen timer or you might download Pomodoro related apps on your smartphones or tablet. For me I use Pomodroido.
Pomodoro Technique is actually very simple, we just need to focus and concentrate doing something without distraction for 25 minutes. After that, we take 5-minute break, where we have to do something relaxing; go for a short walk, have a cup of coffee, etc. We must do something not work related. This 5 minutes will actually increase our productivity flow.
Some task will require more than 25 minutes, therefore it is important for us to plan how many cycle does a task need. Do take note that for every 4 cycle of 25/5 minute, we need to take longer break; 20 minutes, 30 minutes or even 1 hour.
Yes, I created this post using this technique and it is very efficient. =D
