Too Long; Didn't Read
The Pomodoro Technique has been helping people get more done since 2006. Founder of the technique is Francesco Cirillo, a student of Milan, Italy, in the 1980s. The primary method is using a kitchen timer to break work into intervals, with short breaks in between. It takes some discipline to work in short bursts like that, but the rewards come quickly once you do. The technique is incredibly simple. You just need to set your timer for 25 minutes. Focus 100% of your attention on one task during those 25 minutes.
