The Pomodoro Technique is a simple yet powerful time-management technique developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. Traditionally, it involves a tomato-shaped kitchen timer—pomodoro is Italian for “tomato”—which you set for 25 minutes. During this 25-minute block, you work on only one task without interruptions. One such interval is called a “pomodoro.” Once the 25 minutes are over, you take a five-minute break.
