I was going through the same just one week ago. All was messed up and I was not meeting my goals, I daily had 2/3 of tasks not done on my to-do list. This made me feel unhappy, demotivated, and unsatisfied. Luckily, I was referred to apply the Pomodoro technique, which really proved helpful for being more productive and mindful of my time.
What is the Pomodoro technique?
This is a time management technique proposed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s, in which you have to accomplish a task in small chunks of time to stay focused and active. Following are the steps to implement the technique.
I decided to implement the technique in my daily routine. Firstly, I prioritized my to-do list, as it's the most important thing to keep track of your tasks.
Design your day so that your routine moves you closer to your goals.
I set the timer using https://pomofocus.io/ and started working on my lab assignment, which I had been delaying for the last 5 days. It was not easy to implement this technique as I had used it before and it didn’t work for me. But still, I changed my mindset and thought that it would surely be helpful for me. I continued working, wrote all distractions on a page that popped up my mind during one dedicated Pomodoro session. After 25 minutes, I took 5 minutes break and used it to just relax my mind.
As Cirillo says that "cheaters" keep working but in a more informal way. Also I neither used my phone during this short break nor talked to someone, just to keep my break limited to 5 minutes.
I repeated this thrice more in same pattern. Then, I should have 15–30 minutes long break but I was feeling quite energetic and focused. So, I decided to complete my assignment in one sitting. After two more pomodoro sessions, my assignment was completed. I was much surprised that being too focused I did that effectively. Then,it seemed very realistic to me that:
The whole thing is organizing in order to play a specific game, and the game is how to deal with time, Cirillo says.
Now, I’ll be using this technique daily to be more productive and focused. It saves a lot of time, giving a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
