While at the Tyson Developers Conference last week I attended a productivity session by Claudio Lassala. During the session he introduced us to a time management technique known as Pamadoro. Essentially, tasks are performed in 25 minute blocks with a five minute break between each work block. Today, I found a tool called Keep Focused on CodePlex.com. The tool allows a task to be entered then the 25 minute timer count down is started. I used Keep Focused all day and really felt quite productive.
Give Keep Focused a try and see if your productivity doesn’t improve.
