comment How do you start working?
This is good advice. I remember once I was working with a student during a study hall period. He was adamant about how he couldn't do his math assignment because it was too hard and he couldn't think clearly. I fought him tooth and nail to do very simple tasks. 1. Get out your book. 2. Get out a piece of paper. 3. Put your name on your paper. 4. get out your planner. 5. write down your assignment. 6. open the book to the right page. Then I told him that we were just going to talk about a sample problem. He then realized how easy it was and was done in 15 min.

comment How to use the Pomodoro Technique while finishing a task and the Pomodoro rings?
I think you need to make sure you have a 3-5 min break where you are not thinking about it, but 3-5 min shouldn't be too long as far as those pathways being still fresh for jumping back in. I agree that it will be hard at first but I think that over time coming back to what you were working on will become easier.
