#tbt – POM-O-DOR-O

3 Mar

This week’s #tbt is the first video podcast from author Daniel Pink. He has written a few great books including “Drive” and “To sell is Human”….both of which I highly recommend.

In this VLOG, he shares an interesting time management technique called the Pomodoro technique. Effectively, you us a tomato time to do one focused project for 25 minutes. At the end of the 25 minutes, a buzzer sounds, you take a five minute break and then the cycle starts over again.


Here are a couple additional links for you to check out:
