Browsing the internet leads to spiralling activities. Most popular websites are designed to keep you browsing. You may think you'll just watch the cat video, but when it's finished, YouTube shows you nine other cat videos you can watch, and even before you're through the sidebar is full of tantalizing videos selected by the top machine learning algorithms to ...

I'm relatively new to the Pomodoro system, but here's something that might work: instead of cutting yourself off, postpone the activity. So instead of saying no to reading the next article or clicking the next link, put it on a list somewhere. When you get a break, read the next thing on the list. Anything fun or interesting you encounter, put it on the list ...

I'm going to plug this free webapp that I made. PomoTrackr.com I track Pomodoros like it's a religion. Being self-employed I need it to stay focus. At the time, I couldn't find a Pomodoro App that accurately tracked my progress. Basically I wanted to see how I was doing last week, last month. Am I trending upwards or downwards etc. The History View is ...

Remarkably quickly the feedback loop means you get to the ...

As mentioned, pomedoro is a great tool for some tasks, however I agree that coding and some other tasks requre a higher zone out to fully dive into the subject. In your case pomodoro is nothing more than a tool that helps you not to overload with your tasks. I want to suggest you not to focus on the tools but focus more on the book that you are reading as ...

Personally, I let the context decide whether I go for the break immediately or keep working for a little bit longer. One of the main advantages of the Pomodoro technique is that it tempers your enthusiasm. A flow state is like a chain reaction, very powerful, but if you let it run its course it'll burn up all your energy, and then you won't get back into ...

I personally use Google calendar for this. It can do this effectively. If you learn how to use effectively: Prior to june 22 - 2015: you could add the stuff to your calendar and let you send a text-message at some point to remind you. Now the text message feature has been removed. BUT there was another feature: pop-up feature which basically sends a ...

I got into the pomodoro technique after using focus@will. It's a service (not free, but not very expensive), which lets you play music that is optimized for productivity. The pomodoro timer is exceedingly simple, but does the job very well. It has a productivity tracker that lets you keep track of how focused you are, but that's about it. Again, it's ...
