Study productivity: Does the Pomodoro technique work?

Today I had a study day. Normally I have trouble remaining on task and I am easily distracted.

Yesterday I read an amazing article on how to stay on point and “get it done”. This lead me to the Pomodoro technique. The Pomodoro breaks down your work into manageable chunks with short breaks in between.

The outline is:

  • 25 mins focussed work
  • 5 min break
  • Repeat 4 times and have a 30 min break

For sport lovers it is like a quarter time break. Which is a great time to stretch, drink, check other duties and get focussed for the next 25 minutes of work.

I found that I was getting excited to get back into it.

Try it and see what you think.
