Pomodoro!

Found Pomodoro last night, and it deals with many of the issues I have been facing while working on my thesis at UCSC.  I am attempting to use it today.  The creators seem to give everything away for free, which is awesome, so I will list the 5 steps here:


  • Choose a task to be accomplished

  • Set the Pomodoro to 25 minutes (the Pomodoro is the timer)

  • Work on the task until the Pomodoro rings, then put a check on your sheet of paper

  • Take a short break (5 minutes is OK)

  • Every 4 Pomodoros take a longer break

  • (source)


    I just finished my 3rd Pomodoro, currently tracking them at: tomatoi.st, a free web app.  Tomorrow I will try diving deeper into the technique.
