A Question



Have you ever succeed
doing TWO things at a
       time?
Have you ever succeed doing TWO
          things at a time?
Not easy to keep your focus on both, right?
SEVERAL things at a time?

           ?
Human can’t do several things at a
             time!
Unless you’re Napoleon, of course..
The story started in 80s in Italy….

Francesco Cirillo, a student was having
distractions doing home assignments..
So he made a bet with himself:

     “Can you study – really
    study - for 10 minutes?”
In fact, it took time and a great deal of
                   effort


     “.. but in the end I succeed.”
Working with distractions

      What we had
Working with the “Pomodoro” timer

          What we got
Activity Inventory Sheet

Put all the activities you have to accomplish on the Activity Inventory Sheet
To Do Today
At the beginning of each day select the tasks you need   1.   Choose the topmost task from the list
to complete and copy them on the To Do Sheet             2.   Set the Pomodoro to 25 minutes
                                                         3.   Work until the Pomodoro rings
                                                         4.   Mark the task with an X on the ToDoSheet
                                                         5.   Take a short break (3–5 minutes)
                                                         6.   Every 4 Pomodoros take a longer break, (15–30
                                                              minutes)
Analyze your Performance

      Analyze your Performance.
      Plan next “Pomodoros” better!
Interruptions

Rules and Tips


•   A Pomodoro is indivisible
•   If a task takes more than 5–7 Pomodoros, break it down
•   If it takes less than one pomodoro, add it up, and combine it with another task
•   Once a Pomodoro begins, it has to ring
•   The next pomodoro will go better
•   The Pomodoro Technique shouldn’t be used for activities you do in your free time.
    Enjoy free time!
What is it like? SCRUM?
The Pomodoro is always actual
