February is Time Management month, and I want to share one of my favorite time management and focus techniques with you.
It has been around forever, but it remains very effective.
Wondering what it is?
The Pomodoro Technique.
Have you heard about it? Regardless, let me explain the technique and share the benefits and tips if you wish to implement this practice.
It’s a really simple technique. Simply:
The technique is flexible, but I recommend you start with this, get comfortable and then tweak it to fit your style.
This technique is one of the first time management tools I ever used. There have been periods where I stop using Pomodoro’s. However, I’ve recently returned to this simple and effective technique as I need more frequent breaks and am having trouble staying focused for long periods. The Pomodoro technique has been a perfect solution for me.
Pomodoro’s are helping me stay focused and on track.
At first, you might think the frequent breaks might be a problem. Or you may struggle to see how this technique will help you.
Once I explain the benefits, you might be inspired to try it.
When I struggle to stay focused, I switch tasks often or get restless/fidgety. I have found that the Pomodoro technique helps reduce task switching and allows me to focus on the task at hand.
When you first implement the technique, you might find it challenging to make it work for you or see the benefits. However, keep at it because once you find your flow with the Pomodoro’s, you will see tremendous benefits and will be glad you stayed with it.
Here are some tips to help out.
Once you are comfortable with your Pomodoro’s, feel free to tweak it. Even find ways to use the technique in other areas of your life. Maybe use it when doing house cleaning. Clean for 25 minutes, 5-minute break? Or one Pomodoro for social media?
Let me know if you use Pomodo’s today. If you don’t, will you give it a try?
