I’ve read good amount of books/ blogs/ reddit threads on productivity.
Mainly, I was inspired to work on improving my productivity after reading the book – 4 Hour Work Week.
It has been almost a year now practicing & improving my Productivity and today, I want to share with you some of the best ways (or say my experiments) that can dramatically improve your productivity!
Note: I’ll be sharing the tips in parts (i.e. one tip every week).
Reason: So that you can consume all the tips well! These are ACT Exercises and hence won’t be good if I share all at once!
Time for the Fifth Strategy/ Way to Remain Super Productive!
5) Pomodoro Technique!
The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method.
The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. These intervals are known as “pomodori”
One should target around 10 pomodori in a day and anything more than 10+ is fantastic.
How I use it?
Before I begin my work, I set the eggtimer to 25 minutes. After the 25 minutes are over, I take a short break of 5 mins and reset the timer again to 25 mins.
After 3 – 4 pomodori, I take a big break of around 20 – 30 minutes.
Doing so keeps me super focused & fresh!
Why use it?
Because that’s how you will maintain the energy level!
If you keep on working for 2 hours stretch you are bound to have super low energy levels as the day progresses.
Note: Pomodoro does says that divide your task at 25 minutes, I however set my first couple of hours at 50 mins, since I know I am super active/ productive in the morning and hence do not mind keeping a longer duration before I take a break. After lunch when my energy level are down, I start using the 25 mins duration.
Hope the above 5 tools/ ways helps you in increasing your productivity. If you are looking for more productivity tips, just hop on to reddit.com/r/productivity!
