Eat that Frog with Pomodoro

What Is Pomodoro Technique?

Pomodoro is a widely popular time management technique developed in the early 1990s by Francesco Cirillo, a software designer who struggled to focus during his studies. Francesco would use a tomato-shaped kitchen timer and challenged himself to concentrate on a task without any distractions for up to 25 minutes.

Later Francesco wrote a book that describes Pomodoro technique in detail. Since then Pomodoro helped millions of people to become more productive without extra stress.

The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. Each interval is known as a Pomodoro, from the Italian word for ‘tomato’, after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that Cirillo used as a university student

with a limited number of hours in each day, the challenge of completing all of one’s work and activities can feel overwhelming. Even the most self-disciplined of us will succumb to procrastination and lack of concentration. That is why it is critical to employ time management techniques that have been developed and tested to assist us in working more efficiently. The Pomodoro technique is one such method that has been proven to be so effective that it is used by CEOs and millions of other professionals.

Today, I decided to read an article on my research topic “Government vocational education and training policy for improved Entrepreneurship skill in the SME Sector. Initially it was difficult for me to concentrate on conceptual framework and variables, But after few breaks and tries I was enables to read 70% of article in three sessions of 25 minutes each.

My experience while using this technique was very exciting and learning one. I felt stressed during fist 10 minutes I took 3–4 minute break drink water and again set the alarm and started reading the article
