About This Class

Why Pomodoro?

The Pomodoro Technique isn’t like any other time-management method on the market today. What makes it so unique?


For many people, time is an enemy. We race against the clock to finish assignments and meet deadlines. The Pomodoro Technique teaches you to work with time, instead of struggling against it. A revolutionary time management system, it is at once deceptively simple to learn and life-changing to use.


Essential to the Pomodoro Technique is the notion that taking short, scheduled breaks while working eliminates the “running on fumes” feeling you get when you’ve pushed yourself too hard. It’s impossible to over work when you stick to the system. You may end up taking fewer sick days, too!


Whether it’s a call, a Facebook message, or suddenly realizing you need to change the oil in your car, many distracting thoughts and events come up when you’re at work. The Pomodoro Technique will help you log your distractions and order them according to priority levels. Often, they can wait.


Most of us are intimately acquainted with the guilt that comes from procrastinating. If we haven’t had a productive day, it’s pretty easy to end up feeling like we can’t enjoy our free time. Becoming a Pomodoro Master involves creating an effective timetable, allowing you to truly enjoy your time off.

  • Two of the biggest productivity killers are distractions and interruptions.
  • If you can eliminate these two you WILL be more productive. There are a lot of systems, methods, and methodologies that cope with those productivity killers and I’ve struggled with and tried most of them.
  • However, there is one method that I have found to be the most useful for increasing your personal productivity and for getting things done.
  • What I’m about to teach you is called the Pomodoro Technique and I’ll show you the 25 minute chunk strategy to boost your productivity into a consistent and manageable hyperdrive for daily gains towards your success and time management strategies.
  • The methods are great at accelerating your productivity and managing your time effectively.
  • The strategies are simple and practical to apply step-by step.
  • Anyone can do the Pomodoro Technique and it is highly recommended.
  • The methods yield predictably great results instantly from day 1.
  • We will walk through the process together, step by step.

Great class! Can't wait to try this out at home this weekend. There are always those pesky tasks that I just keep putting off: organizing travel photos, cleaning, Skillshare Projects ;) , etc.

A short and very to the point class on the Pomodoro Technique. I should have no problems utilizing this method. Thank you.
Yousha is a very fine teacher. His voice is very pleasant, he articulates very well, and his speed of delivery is very good. I look forward to checking out his other classes. I think this class would serve as a very good example for people considering becoming Skillshare teachers. Yours in Gratitude, WendyHT
