I’ve featured the Pomodoro technique before (short bursts of uninterrupted focus). I’m highlighting it again as it was my saviour this past fortnight when I had lots to do and limited time. My best time for focus work is mornings. I knew I had to capitalise on the energy and willpower I have early in the day, before it ran out. So I’d set the timer for 25 minute bursts and do nothing but the single task at hand. Interspersed with short breaks, it’s amazing what can be achieved before lunch. Next time you’re up against a deadline, this could see you through!
