The Pomodoro Technique

Following on from yesterday’s post on How to Read I thought I’d mention the Pomodoro Technique, which I stumbled upon today:

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method. For many of us time is an enemy. The anxiety triggered by “the ticking clock” and deadlines to be met leads to ineffective work and study habits and procrastination. The Pomodoro Technique transforms time into a valuable ally.

Francesco Cirillo created the Pomodoro Technique in 1992 after a long search to improve his own study habits. Starting in the late ’90s the technique was embraced by professional teams. It can help us accomplish what we want to do and chart continuous improvement in the way we do it.

They have a free e-book entitled The Pomodoro Technique, which I’ve downloaded and will try to read later on. From my quick browse it looks like it could be a really helpful time management system.  Web Worker Daily mentioned, a timing service designed to be used in conjunction with Pomodoro.

Have any of you used this technique, or have any tips on how you make the most of your time in order to glorify the Lord?
