Stop struggling to meet your project deadlines and get stuff done with a Pomodoro based app like FocusList!
In today’s multitasking world, there’s a constant juggling of activities. If you slacken just a little bit… BAM! Your Inbox fills up with new tasks, meetings pile up, nothing gets done and you end up stressed out!
Francesco Cirillo, the popular author and entrepreneur of the 90’s came up with a system known as the Pomodoro Technique to help multitaskers just like you. In the system, a task is broken up into smaller tasks and a short time frame (25 minutes) is assigned to complete it. A short break of about 5 minutes follows before the next task begins.
By breaking down activities into smaller time-framed tasks, the Pomodoro Technique helps to overcome distractions and stay hyper-focused. You get stuff done in quick short bursts and you also get your short breaks to unwind and relax.
This technique is easy to follow now thanks to a little help from technology. The App Store has plenty of decent apps that help you use the Pomodoro technique to work more productively. One app that I recently caught my attention is FocusList.
