September 8, 2017 by Neelima | 0 comments

In the late 1980s, a student called Francesco Cirillo found a way to tackle the productivity issues he faced using a 25-minute tomato-shaped kitchen timer. Instead of trying to finish studying everything all at once, he divided his work into manageable chunks. The Pomodoro technique was born. Fun fact: In Italian, Pomodoro means Tomato.

This technique is especially useful for writers who would benefit greatly from writing continuously for a distraction free twenty-five minutes, only to resume again. Have you tried it?
