Below are steps to use pomodoro Technique
Over 2 million people have already used the Pomodoro® Technique to transform their lives, making them more productive, more focused and even smarter. Do more and have fun with time management
The Pomodoro® Core Process
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 at once deceptively simple to learn and life-changing to use. Fransesco Cirillo says Time is not Predator
The Pomodoro® Technique is organized into six incremental objectives Find out how much effort an activity requires
Ever wonder where all your time goes? Wonder no more: it’s all on the page. Your Pomodoro To-Do sheet is a visual overview of the time you’ve spent on various tasks.
Cut down on interruptions
Usually, you can afford to take 25 minutes before calling back a friend or replying to an email. You’ll learn how to handle the inevitable interruption while staying focused on the task at hand.
Estimate the effort for activities
Once you’ve gotten the hang of the technique, you’ll be able to accurately predict how many Pomodoro’s it will take to accomplish tomorrow’s — or next month’s — tasks.
Make the Pomodoro® more effective
While the contours of the Pomodoro® are set, what you do within them can be adjusted to maximize efficiency. One way to make a Pomodoro® more effective is to use the first few minutes to review what you’ve done before. Other methods are discussed in the book.
Set up a timetable
A timetable sets a limit, motivating you to complete a task within a set period of time. It also delineates your work time from your free time. Creating a clear timetable will allow you to enjoy your time off without worrying that you could be doing more work.
Define your own objectives
The Pomodoro® Technique is a tool you can use to reach your own objectives. For example, a writer might realize he’s spending too much time revising, and adjust his Pomodoro® timetable to allow for more brainstorming time.

The Pomodoro® Core Process consists of 6 steps:
- Choose a task you’d like to get done
Something big, something small, something you’ve been putting off for a million years: it doesn’t matter. What matters is that it’s something that deserves your full, undivided attention.
- Set the Pomodoro for 25 minutes
Make a small oath to yourself: I will spend 25 minutes on this task and I will not interrupt myself. You can do it! After all, it’s just 25 minutes.
- Work on the task until the Pomodoro®rings
Immerse yourself in the task for the next 25 minutes. If you suddenly realize you have something else you need to do, write the task down on a sheet of paper.
- When the Pomodoro rings, put a checkmark on a paper
Congratulations! You’ve spent an entire, interruption-less Pomodoro® on a task.
- Take a short break
Breathe, meditate, grab a cup of coffee, go for a short walk or do something else relaxing (i.e., not work-related). Your brain will thank you later.
- Every 4 pomodoros, take a longer break
Once you’ve completed four Pomodoro’s, you can take a longer break. 20 minutes is good. Or 30. Your brain will use this time to assimilate new information and rest before the next round of Pomodoro’s.
