One of the most useful methods for increasing your personal productivity and for getting things done is called the Pomodoro Technique.

The Pomodoro technique is a way of managing time and becoming more productive by managing tasks in 25 minute intervals. All you need is a timer (also called a Pomodoro) for this technique to work. Here are the steps:

1- Identify what the task at hand is.
2- Set your Pomodoro to 25 minutes.
3- Work on the task until the Pomodoro is over.
4- Take a 5 minute break.
5- For every four Pomodoros take a longer break (15-20 minutes).

Concentrate deeply on your task for the 25 minutes and stop every interruption till the timer is over.
Don’t check emails or answer calls during the 25 min.

By completing each Pomodoro, you will feel more productive. 25 minutes is not too long and not too short to feel like you are working towards completing a task.
