The Story Behind this Coaching
Francesco Cirillo tells the story behind the You and Me Pomodoro® Coaching.
"More than 30 years ago, when I started to observe my relationship with time and how time could help me look after my mind and its dynamics, I stopped fighting against time and time stopped being a problem.
I know how it feels to fail when it comes to time. I know the need to procrastinate, of following up on any interruption as a way to avoid working on the task. I know what it means to make yourself work 14 hours a day. I know the frustration that comes from the illusion that this behaviour will resolve your problem with time.
But, there is a more efficient way to deal with time. Understand the real problem we have in our relationship with time and consciously solve it by applying solutions adapted to our own context. Simple solutions which, with little effort, can make us very productive.
In my career as a methodologist, my main objective has always been to find solutions characterised by requiring little effort to implement with effective results like the Pomodoro® Technique.
Why do we need these kinds of solutions? Because when we are under pressure, our energy level is low and we can't implement complex solutions. We need to use our energy to think, make effective decisions, and solve problems. We must not work for the process, the process must work for us."

Francesco's approach to dealing with Time
Francesco and you work on how to make time your main ally to increase your productivity.
The solution to managing time can only be found in a radical change of your point of view. And it is easier than it seems. By acquiring adequate tools and working on yourself and your own needs, time can turn from being perceived as an enemy to an ally. We can use time to observe ourselves, make our minds work better and by doing so increase our focus. This leads to a real improvement in productivity. Time can help us respect our deadlines. In a gentle way. One Pomodoro at a time.

The Pomodoro course helped me to take more realistic approach to my personal time management and gave me self-confidence to reach towards my goals. The course introduces some very useful concepts and approaches for managing complex goals and planning both one's own work effort and work in teams. I can recommend the course for everyone who wants to work more effectively and to make realistic plans for reaching complex or simple goals either personally or in teams.
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!
