Its simplicity is deceptive... It eased my anxiety over the passing of time and also made me more efficient; refreshed by breaks, for example, I halved the total time required to fact-check a column.

DE POMODORO-TECHNIEK

Waar anderen gewoon een keukenwekker in de vorm van een tomaat zagen, zag Francesco Cirillo het geheim tot productiever werken. Het leek bijna te simpel om zó effectief te zijn: deel je dag op in tijdseenheden van 25 minuten (één pomodoro), zet steeds een wekker, houd tussendoor korte pauzes en bedenk waar je je volgende ‘pomodoro’ aan gaat besteden. Het bleek zo goed te werken dat cirillo zijn techniek uitwerkte en er cursussen over ging geven. Al snel omarmden velen deze methode: volgens The Wall Street Journal kan iedereen hierdoor beter focussen. Newsweek vindt het ‘een van de beste manieren om slimmer te werken’, en het is een van de meest populaire methoden van de lifehacker.com-community. Inmiddels zijn al meer dan twee miljoen mensen ermee aan de slag gegaan.

De pomodoro-techniek staat bomvol effectief tijdsmanagement-advies. Je leert hoe je de techniek kunt aanpassen aan jouw behoeften en er zo maximaal profijt uit kunt halen. Daarnaast leer je inschatten hoeveel tijd het kost om een taak te voltooien, hoe je je productiviteit kunt monitoren en persoonlijke doelen kunt stellen die haalbaar zijn. Of in de woorden van Cirillo: ‘Quiet your mind. keep distractions at bay. Let your ideas take center stage.’
