The Pomodoro Technique

Beat procrastination and improve your focus one pomodoro at a time


The secret to effective time management is…thinking in tomatoes rather than hours? It may seem silly at first, but millions of people swear by the life-changing power to the Pomodoro Technique. (Pomodoro is Italian for tomato. 🍅)

This popular time management method asks you to alternate pomodoros — focused work sessions — with frequent short breaks to promote sustained concentration and stave off mental fatigue.

Try the Pomodoro Technique if you…

  • Find little distractions often derail the whole workday
  • Consistently work past the point of optimal productivity
  • Have lots of open-ended work that could take unlimited amounts of time (e.g., studying for an exam, research for a blog post, etc.)
  • Are overly optimistic when it comes to how much you can get done in a day (aren’t we all 🙃)
  • Enjoy gamified goal-setting
  • Really like tomatoes.

I came to know about Pomodoro technique a few days ago and I decided to apply it in my routine.

There was a university Homework deadline on Saturday this week. I set the alarm for 25 minutes and started doing Homework but a distraction pops into my mind that a lot of time is available to do the Homework. Let it go this time. I managed to do my Homework till timer rings. I took a break and then again I repeated the same job for more 25 minutes.

In the start it was difficult for me to start the task because there was plenty of time available for submitting the Homework . When I completed my Homework in 50 minutes by Pomodoro technique I felt accomplished. This technique helps me in achieving a lot more than what I expect. Now I have planned to apply this technique in every life segment so that monkey does not affect my professional life

Pomodoro technique helps me achieve my goal and its like climbing a mountain. Once you come at the top you can touch the clouds.
