Blimp is great for getting you and your team organized around projects. If you’ve setup your project correctly, you now have a list of goals and tasks you have to complete. Tasks should be small. So small that any given task can be completed in just a few minutes. If you have tasks like “Make website”, you are doing it wrong. That task is very hard to complete and it might take days, weeks or even months. Come up with smaller tasks, it makes all the difference.

Now we are ready to start working but we all know that we are always tempted with multi-tasking which tends to harm our productivity. We need a way to focus, so we can get things done. That’s where the Pomodoro Technique comes in.

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method created by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980s that aims to help you use time as a valuable ally in accomplishing your tasks, and enables you to continually improve the way you work. This technique provides a simple tool and process for improving productivity. There’s tons of resources to help you get started and get to work.

At Blimp we use the Pomodoro Technique all the time, it really helps us focus on one task at a time, which ultimately improves productivity.

This is how we do it

The Pomodoro Technique must be taken as a general blueprint and not interpreted too rigidly. You should modify and shape it to your needs, whatever makes you more comfortable. The idea behind the Pomodoro Technique is to eliminate the anxiety of time, enhance focus, and concentration. Read more about the Pomodoro Technique: http://www.pomodorotechnique.com/
