Individual assignments are very important in this course. They are assigned at the end of each session. The following session starts with feedback on the individual assignments. Comparison with other course participants enables you to see solutions different from your own, to see contexts and problems different from your own and to receive useful feedback for achieving your own objective for the course.

In the final session, Francesco will hold a Productivity Clinic for checking with you whether you have achieved your objective for the course and showing you how to correctly apply what you have learned in your next project or next challenge.

The world of my perceived possibilities and the utilization of my abilities has been enhanced to the level that I know that when I look back on my life there will be two significant periods of accomplishment, pre-pomodoro and post-pomodoro periods. It's just that powerful!

Speaking as a life-long knowledge junkie who has gone through dozens, if not a hundred self improvement training programs and books, the Pomodoro Technique Time Management Course is hands down one of the best training programs I have ever done, which have had the highest impact on my life. This course has helped me understand how to overcome productivity problems I have struggled with for years, it is the breakthrough I was looking for. I used to be intimidated by large projects and goals where I didn't know exactly what to do and how to do it, but now I am confident I can organize any complex goal, understand it like an X-ray, and create an effective plan of execution, where every pomodoro counts and there is no time waste or confusion. It is one of the very few courses, where I left MORE EXCITED than when I joined! I am very happy, satisfied and most of all HIGHLY IMPRESSED with Francesco's work, and I HIGHLY recommend his materials to anyone who is serious about improving their productivity.

If you struggle with time, and with being organized around time, this is the course for you! It will require an investment of time, of leaving yourself open to new ideas, or trying on new habits, but the reward will change your life!

I'm a big fan of the Pomodoro Technique. It's not too often you get to work directly with the creator of a tool that has changed your life. Now that I've worked with Francesco directly, I'm an even bigger fan. I'm enthusiastic because this technique is simple and life-changing. The course helped me go into deeper related concepts built on the basic technique. Anyone who wants to streamline their day and their thinking would benefit from this tasty course. Anyone who struggles with feeling like they don't have enough time to get done what they want, whether on a daily basis or in terms of life goals, would do well to master this technique. I'm excited to see my business and life evolve with my new knowledge gained from this course.
