comment How to use pomodoro in a busy environment
I know, the teammates know, the team leader knows, but there is nothing we can do about it, although we try our best to limit the unplanned stuff. It's just that the change was sudden, and we were a 'throw-all' team, doing stuff no one else wanted. We're at 10th sprint and I still think we work more in a "shifing-priority queue" style.

And express your pressure, whether you have or not, to other people Sadly this doesn't seem to work well with some people :(. I can't see how Gantt chart will help me concentrate more on the work, since we already estimate each and every task, and what I am looking for is what you said in your last sentence: "Reduce my distraction".

The problem is that this product owner requires these hundreds of assurations. As for Scrum, we are already working under this methodology, but... Well, it doesn't work that well in my company, there is always something important that has to be done yesterday, and it's not up to me to decline these tasks. Besides, everyone would consider it a bad team play, because 'communication is most important' (especially if you are doing a second thing in the middle of the first, and suddenly they want you to do a third or a fourth one).

The problem with pair programming is that it requires another programmer, so it's paying twice for doing one job (that's how upper management would say anyway) - it's completely impossible for me.
