My Daily Thoughts



Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life.
Eckhart Tolle

The Pomodoro technique is an effective time management technique.

The process breaks down into five steps.

  1. Choose the one thing you will accomplish
  2. Choose the length of time you will focus on the task
  3. Set a timer for the work
  4. Work at accomplishing the one thing until the timer goes off
  5. Take a break
  6. Repeat

A few keys:

  • When choosing your one thing make sure it is well defined so you can see progress towards finishing it.
  • Use the same amount of time for every block so you build the habit of working regardless of what the one thing is.
  • Evaluate on a weekly basis how well the length of time is working and adjust either making it longer or shorter
  • Make sure the break feels like a break. Move yourself away from where you are working to reinforce the break
  • Use one of your blocks of time to really brainstorm the different “One Things” you want to accomplish.
  • Don’t switch tasks during a block of time. If something comes up, or you have ideas, just jot them down to address them after the timer goes.
  • If you finish the “One Thing” before the timer, keep working to make it even better. Over-deliver
