What is the Pomodoro Technique?

The Pomodoro Technique was invented in the earliest 1990s by author and developer Francesco Cirillo. The name Pomodore comes from the tomato-shaped timer Cirillo used to track his work as a student.

How does it work / How can I study with the Pomodoro Technique?

The Pomodoro Technique is one of the simplest methods to implement. All you need is a timer. You don’t need any apps, devices or even Cirillo’s book “The Pomodoro Technique”.

Here’s how to get started with Pomodoro, in five steps:

  1. Choose a Task or Activity
  2. Set the timer (Pomodoro) to 25 minutes
  3. If the timer (Pomodoro) rings stop and make a check on a paper
  4. Take a short break (5 minutes are good)
  5. Every 4 Pomodoros take a healthy long break

Those long breaks are usually from 15 to 30 minutes or whatever time gets you recharged and ready to start another 25-minute productivity session so you can repeat this throughout your day.

If you get distracted, for example by a someone else , you either have to stop the Pomodoro (starting a new later) or you need to postpone the distraction until the Pomodoro is finished.

YEAY, Now you can use the Pomodore Technique to hack your productivity and boost your efficiency!
