You can assume that being more productive is just about getting more done in less time, and if you are productive, you definitely accomplish more in hours than many people do in days, but productivity is more than that. You should be doing less and at the same time, be much more productive.
You probably look for information about tools and techniques, and most of the time it may seem like common sense. Unfortunately, common sense is not a common practice and this is why many individuals struggle to increase their productivity.
I am going to share how to be productive. To increase your productivity, you need to ‘be more productive’ by using the POMODORO technique.
1. WORK WITH TIME – NOT AGAINST IT
For many people, time is an enemy. We race against the clock to finish assignments and meet deadlines. The Pomodoro Technique teaches you to work with time, instead of struggling against it. A revolutionary time management system, it is deceptively simple to learn and life-changing to use.
2. ELIMINATE BURNOUT
Essential to the Pomodoro Technique is the notion that taking short, scheduled breaks while working eliminates the “running on fumes” feeling you get when you’ve pushed yourself too hard. It’s impossible to over work when you stick to the system. You may end up taking fewer sick days too!
3. MANAGE DISTRACTIONS
Whether it’s a call, a Facebook message, or suddenly realizing you need to change the oil in your car, many distracting thoughts and events come up when you’re at work. The Pomodoro Technique will help you log your distractions and prioritize them. Often, they can wait.
4. CREATE A BETTER WORK / LIFE BALANCE
Most of us are intimately acquainted with the guilt that comes from procrastinating. If we haven’t had a productive day, it’s pretty easy to end up feeling like we can’t enjoy our free time. Becoming a Pomodoro Master involves creating an effective timetable, allowing you to truly enjoy your time off.
