Are you struggling to manage your time? This theme is coming up quite a bit with my coaching clients lately so I thought I would share a time management strategy with you. It’s called the ‘Pomodoro Technique.’ Some of you may be familiar. It’s very simple! If you have a project you need to focus on, decide on an amount of time you want to dedicate to the project, set a timer (I like to use my iPhone), and dedicate your attention to this project for that set amount of time. Sometimes you might complete the project sooner than you think and other times it may take longer. Start paying attention to how much time projects actually take you! The actual time is often different than what you anticipate. Also, just know that it might take you a minute or two to really get into the work so don’t judge yourself if you lose a couple of minutes on the front end before you really start to focus.

Be patient, the focus will come to you! This strategy really helps me to stay focused and it feels good when the timer goes off and I’ve accomplished something meaningful to me! I reward myself with a break before setting the timer again on a new project! Try it and let me know how it works for you. What are your successes? What are your challenges? What are your ideas? Check out YouTube for videos on this technique.

Thank you for reading! Kris
