I'm trying out a new way to experience time. I can get a bit manic at times . . . so engrossed in a project that I don't take breaks. There's something spiritually deadening about that no matter how charged up I am by the work. To be more spiritually aware and disciplined about my relationship with time and projects I hope this will help me focus and also to set boundaries . . . and live a little more fully while making space for things like . . . a glass of wine, a walk, my loved ones (!) Here's the scoop on the Pomodoro Technique--
The basic unit of work in the Pomodoro Technique™ can be split in five simple steps:
1. Choose a task to be accomplished
2. Set the Pomodoro to 25 minutes (the Pomodoro is the timer)
3. Work on the task until the Pomodoro rings, then put a check on your sheet of paper
4. Take a short break (5 minutes is OK)
5, Every 4 Pomodoros take a longer break
How do you shape your relationship to time? Is it working? Have you tried the Pomodoro Technique?
