Today’s post is fun and certainly ludique, but I hope it may also be useful to some readers.
The Pomodoro Technique is a way to manage time, developed by the Italian Francesco Cirillo in the 1980s – it took me a while to find out about it ;-).
The technique makes use of a tomato-shaped (pomodoro in Italian) timer to break down your work into periods separated by breaks. These are the some of the advantages put forward by its developer:
- You can work with time not against it
- Eliminate burnout
- Manage distractions
- Create a better work/life balance.
