Hey guys, it's Adam. Recently, a good veteran friend of mine told me about the Pomodoro Technique. Essentially what it is, is it's a time management strategy that breaks up your life into 20-25 minute little segments where you focus and kind of reorient yourself to a certain task at hand in 25-minute intervals. So, you work on something for 20 minutes, then you take a 1-5 minute break. It's kind of like an Etch A Sketch, where you shake, erase it, and then you're able to start over fresh in the next 20-minute segment. So try it out, see if that's something that works for you. Do something for 20 minutes, focus hard, and then take a break and relax, go at it again--see if it improves your productivity. Thanks.
