Eat that Frog with a Pomodoro
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. These intervals are named pomodoros, after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that Cirillo used as a university student.
I decided to take the project work to work on. It was an interesting experience by looking at things with this perspective. I think, it was not difficult at all but I felt a bit of pressure to do things fast and I was on my toes all the time. It was difficult in a way that I was not able to transition between rest and working time completely smoothly. Those early minutes of transition are difficult in terms of abiding by the rules. I definitely accomplished more but I am not quite sure about the quality of work. I did much work in small period of time but as a perfectionist myself, I was not completely satisfied with the quality of work. I was able to identify the things which were distracting me the most; so when I will repeat this experiment on different days and time periods, I would be able to tell which things are distracting me repeatedly and can try to get them out of the system or resolve them for good if it is possible.
I will definitely do it again multiple times and will try to increase productivity a bit more every-time I do it.
