  • Hi Vicont,

    Glad you enjoyed it. I make it part of my day's-end ritual to write my daily pomodori in my notebook.

    I've been keeping track of this for the past month or so and it's been interesting watching my daily average go from around 6 to 10 as I've switched projects/environments.

  • I followed this link from Pomodoro list. I like your visual and logical breakdown into GTD and Pomodoros. Also, the graph of weekly Pomodoros is interesting.
    My goal is to finish 25 Pomodoros in a week, which I call Pomodoro^2, that is 25X25.
    I noticed you average around 25 too :)
