What is the Pomodoro Method?
The Pomodoro Method was developed in the late 1980s by Francesco Cirillo, an Italian entrepreneur and developer. The method is named after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer (“pomodoro” is Italian for tomato) that Cirillo used as a university student to divide his work into manageable intervals.
How does it work?
The principle of the Pomodoro Method is straightforward: work with the time, not against it. Here’s how it works:
Choose a task you want to work on.
Set a timer for 25 minutes (this is one “Pomodoro”).
Work on the task until the timer rings, then place a checkmark on a piece of paper.
Take a short, 5-minute break.
Every four “Pomodoros”, take a longer break, around 15-30 minutes.
Who does it work for?
The Pomodoro Method can be used by anyone, and has been beneficial to many around the world. This method can help to manage focus and attention, reduce the overwhelm of large tasks, and provide structure that can be calming and supportive.
When can you use it?
Embedding a Pomodoro timer in your daily routine doesn’t just have to be limited to business tasks. It can be used for any area of life, including studying, cleaning, or even cooking. The beauty of the Pomodoro Method lies in its simplicity and flexibility. I personally like to use it for not just work, but also housecleaning, and hobbies.
