Ways to be more productive

A Pomodoro technique is a system of prioritizing tasks. It is one of the best ways for staying productive at work and having free time for relaxing. Today, we will discuss pros and cons of this technique.

  • Advantages

You may be concentrated on your tasks for only 3 hours and 45 minutes during a work day using this system, and it will change your life, by all means. The reason is to have the qualitative changes. By focusing on the job for 25 minutes and by making a break, you will avoid a distraction of such things as Facebook, Twitter, etc. Thus, it will make you more efficient during these 25 minutes, than during one hour of general work. In this way, you can plan your tasks correctly, because of the right understanding of time. Furthermore, such a system allows you to see all done tasks and stay motivated from day to day.This method is also very easy to use. Nobody may guess you are practicing it; they will see only the result. You just need to work every 25 minutes and then take a break lasting for 2-3 minutes. The time should be increased considering an increase in the number of work cycles. Thus, you will take all your tasks under control and have time not only for work, but also for your recreation and family.

  • Disadvantages

There is the question whether this technique is universal and suits for everyone, depending on the size of the team, specialization, etc. For instance, it would be challenging and strange to use the rule of 25 minutes while you are at the meeting with your partners. There are also problems with communication interruptions when it is impossible to avoid such distractions as the question from the boss and clients during your 25 minutes of work. The same can happen during cooperation with your colleagues. It is impossible to know when he or she will have a time break to notify you about some new information. Besides, many people ask such questions as “What should be done if there is an urgent task; Is it necessary to put it on the list; or When should it be done? Thus, there are also some unanswered questions connected with practical using of the method of Pomodoro. Perhaps, over time, this approach will be improved and all the needs of all people will be taken into account.
