Derived from the Pomodoro Technique this tool allows us to create blocks of time to focus on a single task, while eliminating distraction.

The tool I like is the Pomodoro Pro App. To monitor focus time, without the annoying ticking sound of the kitchen timer Pomodoro, this silent app that sits on your computer or smart phone does the trick. It even adds break times and there’s an option to customise durations to suit your needs. Check out the App Store or other options here.
