The Pomodoro Technique is a way of time management, created by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980s.
The basic principle is quite simple.
- Work on 1 task for 25 minutes.
- Take a 5-minute break.
- Every 4 ‘pomodoros’ you take a longer break of 15-20 minutes.
The Pomodoro Technique has become so well-used because it’s compatible with team structures, allowing for multiple people to follow it. If you want to try it yourself, you can start with this Pomodoro widget for Android.
