Hi y’all! Please bear with me, this is the first time I’ve started a new topic on this forum. And actually, I could have made it a poll, but don’t know how yet.
Anyway, I just did a search on pomodoro on this forum and it seems loads of brains use it successfully. There was just one post that said it was hard to take a break and then get back to work after 5 minutes… I nearly got excited about finding a soulmate on this, then realised that was my own post
To be honest, although it makes me feel better if I’m not the only one who fails at this, I am really hoping to hear from a fellow Brain who managed to turn things around on this. How did you do this?
My first time was a disaster and I haven’t tried again yet (it worked brilliantly for the first 25 minutes, then I left my phone downstairs and ‘went to have a quick look for that bill to pay after the break’. I left the phone downstairs on purpose, to not get sucked into any internet stuff on my break, but got so annoyed/fed up with myself for not finding the bill that I found offline procrastination stuff to do instead).
Does anyone here have experience of getting the pomodoro technique to work after a bad start? Tips?
