Being Productive with the Pomodoro Technique | Treehouse Quick Tip

Share this article

There are so many distractions that can prevent you from getting things done, from Twitter and email to Facebook and Instagram…

The Pomodoro Technique allows you to manage your time and stay productive with just a simple kitchen timer.

In this technique, you will work on a single task without stopping for 25 minutes, then take a 5 minute break.

First, pick a task that requires concentration and write it down. Then focus only on that single task for a full 25 minutes.

You only complete a Pomodoro by working without interruption for 25 minutes. After 2 or 3 Pomodoros, you can take a longer break.

This technique is a very simple way to maintain a high degree of focus, and will help you to immediately get more done.
