The Pomodoro Technique


Sitting down to write a paper may feel like a huge, even impossible endeavor to undertake. The pomodoro technique is a great way to break longer tasks, like reading, studying, or writing a paper into smaller, more manageable size tasks. (I use this technique myself, and is hands-down the most effective thing I did to get writing done on my dissertation).

Research seems to indicate that there is only a finite amount of time we can focus on a task. The pomodoro technique takes advantage of this by breaking up work in 25 minute intervals.
