What is the Pomodoro Technique:


Here is a brief introduction, which is to set a 25-minute time to focus on completing a to-do list (work), then take a break of 5 minutes, 25 minutes (focus on work) + 5 minutes (rest), just call a Tomato time.

Repeating the four times of tomato time is a round, then you have to take a longer break to digest the previous work or study, give the brain time to regain energy, usually rest for 15-30 minutes, then take the second round of tomato time, according to yourself The actual situation adjustment, each round can be four is three, or five tomato time.

A tomato time is 25 minutes as the working time, because the inventor of the "Tomato Work Method", Francisco Sirillo, has obtained the result of a large number of participants. The 25 minutes is the balance between concentration and interference.


Pomodoro Timer



Time is too long, it is difficult for people to maintain their concentration, and considering the frequency of interruptions at work, it is acceptable to let the person who interrupts them wait for 25 minutes, except for the emergency that has to interrupt work. But this probability is not high.

Usually when an interruption occurs, we can ask ourselves, “Is this matter urgent enough to be processed now? Will it be treated after 20 minutes or will it be treated differently tomorrow?”

We will come to the conclusion that there are many internal interruption factors (for example, suddenly remembering one thing that promised a friend, wanting to drink water, wanting to brush a circle of friends, etc.) and external interruption factors (eg, colleagues ask you, leadership) A copy of the information, etc.) can be postponed for about 20 minutes, so that you can use the rest time to deal with these temporary events.

If the time is tight and the time is long, you can use the next tomato time to complete it as a task. If you can push it back to tomorrow, it will be done in tomorrow's tomato time.

If the time is too short, less than 25 minutes, there are too few things that can be done. It is only suitable for those who can't concentrate at first, and use the tomato work method to gradually concentrate on practicing.
