Pomodoro = Productivity

I recently learned about the Pomodoro Technique and wanted to share it with you. Pomodoro is the Italian word for tomato. This technique was developed in the late 1980's by Francesco Cirillo as a time management system.

The premise is brilliantly simple as shown in the graphic below:

If you haven't tried the Pomodoro Technique, give it a try and let me know if you like it. If you like apps, there are plenty of Pomodoro style timer apps out there that will track your time and remind you when it's time to take you quick break and your longer break. I know that I can always use a reminder to take a break!

I'm actively testing this out myself as who couldn't use more help in maintaining a productive work style?
