Haha! The Tomato Technique to overcome procrastination? It sounds interesting, doesn't it? 🤔 Well, let me walk you through a little bit of history. Once upon a time in the 80s, there was a guy named Francesco Cirillo, and as you might have guessed, he was Italian....
Mr. Cirillo was a university student, and he couldn't get anything done. He struggled with procrastination, so he used a timer in the shape of a tomato (that's why it's called the "Pomodoro" technique). He overcame the problem with it. 💪
He realized that he got much more done in short bursts of activity, which were no longer than 25 minutes, and viola! 🎉 He managed to get stuff done in an amazing manner. Personally, I don't use this technique as often. I prefer to give myself a certain amount of time to accomplish everything. ⏰
But who knows? Maybe it will help you? How about this: take an ordinary day, write down all the tasks you want to accomplish, and then start. But take a 5-minute break every 25 minutes.
It might not sound clever, but try it and see the difference. 😉
And what you struggle to accomplish on a day to day basis? (if there is anything)
