The Pomodoro Technique: The Acclaimed Time-Management System That Has Transformed How We Work
Available through bookstores for the first time, the internationally acclaimed time management system that has been used by millions, written by Francesco Cirillo, creator of the Pomodoro Technique.
Francesco Cirillo developed his famed system for improving productivity as a college student thirty years ago. Using a kitchen timer shaped like apomodoro(Italian fortomato), Cirillo divided the time he spent working on a project into 25-minute intervals, with 5-minute breaks in between, in order to get more done, without interruptions. By grouping a number ofpomodorostogether, users can tackle a project of any length, and drastically improve their productivity, enhance their focus, and better achieve their goals.
Originally self-published, and shared virally online, this new publication ofThe Pomodoro Techniqueincludes several new chapters on how teams can use thepomodoromethod to save time and increase productivity. The process underlying Cirillo’s technique includes five stages:planningthe day’s tasks,trackingyour efforts,recordingyour daily activities,processingwhat you have done, andvisualizingareas for improvement. With this tried and tested method, readers can simplify their work, find out how much time and effort a task really requires, and improve their focus so they can get more done in the same amount of time each day.
