Using the Pomodoro Technique

One great way to take advantage of the techo’s grid paper is to draw out circles to track work progress using the Pomodoro Technique. This technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals 25 minutes in length, with a 5-minute break in-between. Each circle represents a 25-minute time block, and this makes it easy to count how much time you’ve spent working. It’s also good motivation for staying on task when you’ve got your techo sitting open next to you.
