I waste too much time. It just widdles away and before I know it the morning has disappeared or the afternoon . . . or my life.
You did know that our lives are like a vapour??
When I don't accomplish what I ought, soon stress fills my day as I try to get caught up with what needed to be done. I don't work good under pressure as some do.
Nothing steals my JOY like stress!!
So, now I do a Pomodoro as I start to learn to be more intentional with how I use my time. Time well spent. Well spent for the Lord because the day is evil.
A Pomodoro is like a measurement of time.
- I set the timer for 25 minutes.
- I work at at task uninterrupted until the times goes off.
- THAT is a Pomodoro!!
I take a 5 minute break between each Pomodoro. That helps me to be more productive. How many times do I keep working and working at something until I am no longer productive and work slower and slower??
Things that I do during a Pomodoro:
- I disconnect from social networking (I wasn't so connected in the first place!!)
- No Facebook
- No Twitter (not that I know how to tweet other than post my post)
- No Google +
- No Gmail (now that hurts!!)
- No NOTHING except work and productivity!!
There is more to a Pomodoro than all this but your brain is probably sizzling with overload since you just might be taking a 5 minute break to read my post?
If you are interested in Pomodoros you may purchase the book here.
Or download it here.
The Apple Timer can be purchased here.
It sure is cute!! How can I do a real Pomodoro without one?!
