For a lot of people, technology is like death and taxes
Technology is essential – but that doesn’t mean fun … I get it.
One of the ways to get the most out of your technology business planning the first time is to really focus on what you need and what it will take to get there.
A few months ago, I read about the Pomodoro Technique which is useful for productivity hacking. It can be used to power through any tasks that require a lot of focus.
I think it’s especially powerful when you’re working on something you’ve been putting off either because you dislike doing it, or you think it’ll take too long to finish it.
The Pomodoro Technique eliminates multitasking. A recent study indicates that multitasking can reduce your productivity by as much as 40%.
That thing we’ve all been doing actually makes things worse. DAMMIT.

Use the Pomodoro Technique to Finish Tasks Quicker And Do Productivity Hacking
The Pomodoro Technique requires your complete focus in 25-min blocks.
Every 25 minutes you take a 3-5 minute break and then start a new session, either continuing to work on the same task or moving onto another task.
Here’s the kicker – you cannot have any other distractions. No cell phone. No email. NOTHING.
I challenge you to carve out 2 pomodoros TODAY.
It’s really hard when you start. You’ll realize just how distracted you’ve been. And if you can make it through 2, chances are over time you’ll be able to do more and more.
You’ll find it feels really good to strengthen your focus muscle!
