<aside> 🍅 The Pomodoro Technique is a productivity method developed by Francesco Cirillo designed to bring your full attention span and concentration to a single task and accomplish it in the most effective way; by breaking work into 25-minute intervals.

The difference between The Pomodoro Technique and The Flowtime Technique is that the Pomodoro has a predetermined time limit for how long you work (25 minutes), with defined short and long breaks in between. On the other hand, The Flowtime Technique allows you to choose one task and focus on it for an extended period of time and only take pauses as needed to maintain your “flow”.
When you’re doing mindless tasks which may not require you to enter into a state of flow, the Pomodoro Technique can be very effective. However, when you need to focus completely on a task that isn't as mindless, The Flowtime Technique is often more effective.
If you’re interested in learning more about the Flowtime Technique, I’ve created a Notion dashboard for it which can be downloaded for free here.
