Redeeming Minutes via Pomodoro

Three reasons I didn’t hesitate to download information on the Pomodoro Technique® via Mary DeMuth’s tweetdeck tonight:

1. I’m a huge Mary DeMuth fan!

2. I need it.

3. It’s FREE! The technique, activity sheets, and even a cheat sheet — all FREE!

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

Care to try this time-saving technique with me?

Suspicions Confirmed!

Visiting Mary DeMuth’s insightful & inspiring Web site is a delight to the eyes as well as the soul. While perusing her site last week, I came across this post.

Regardless if you consider yourself a writer or not, the main idea is the same: true and lasting validation comes only from the Lord—not from a job, a spiritual gift, a bank balance—or, as Mary points out, a publishing contract.

Her words helped to confirm my suspicions. 🙂
