3 Steps to Enhance Focus and Concentration Easily
The Pomodoro Technique® as a personal time management process, is adaptive by nature.
Step 1: Planning
Every morning with the Pomodoro Technique®, you can see all the activities available and choose a selection from them. The Pomodoro Technique® is very goal-oriented. You select only the number of activities that you realistically stand a chance of completing today. This is your commitment. If you manage to complete them all, you get rewarded with a mental trophy.
Your To Do Today sheet is your timeboxed commitment. You shouldn’t put activities there that you do not think you will do today. This sheet allows you to see a goal that is reasonable to reach that very day.
Step 2: Tracking
Start your Pomodoro timer, and do not stop current task until the clock rings. When your Pomodoro timer rings after 25 minutes, it means you have completed one Pomodoro. You should immediately take a break, and detach yourself for three to five minutes from the task. Each time you get an internal or external interruption, write down a title for the activity that is requested by the interruption. You can revisit unplanned tasks after you finished the Pomodoro that you started before the interruption.
During tracking, the main window will be minimized to Windows taskbar or Mac dockbar, You can enable a floating window and drag to somewhere as follows:
Step 3: Learn from Report
A work day contains several Pomodoros. How should you organize them to make the day more effective? Optimizing your work schedule is the result of a continual process of observation and feedback. The objective is to reinforce the concept of a regular succession of activity as much as possible.
