Career Change in 25 Minutes Per Week
For the past 6 or so months I’ve been using a time management technique which has improved my productivity by an estimated 9.73%.
It is, gloriously, centred around an old fashioned kitchen timer in the shape of a tomato. All hail, mighty pomodoro!
The technique is complicated so do try and keep up:
1. Twist the timer to 25 minutes.
2. Work with complete focus on a single project for the whole of that time, eschewing all distractions.
3. Errr…that’s it. Stop after 25 minutes and have a break.
Clients have reported they get more done on their career change in that 25 minutes than they do in the rest of the week.
I now allocate weekly tasks with a projected number of pomodoros each. I could go on about this, but I won’t because I can see you aren’t taking this entirely seriously.
