72% of workers said they procrastinated 1 hour and 54 minutes a day at work in 2019 (OpinionWay study). Stress, a lack of purpose or motivation, or even a lack of listening skills and flexibility can lead to a drop in productivity.
Staying focused at work is without a doubt a big challenge for most workers. Procrastination is still widespread due to a lack of motivation, purpose or even commitment. So it's a good thing that there are solutions like the Pomodoro Method to help you stay focused.
It’s a time management technique developed in the late 1980s and now used by perhaps two million people around the world. It was developed by Francesco Cirillo, who wanted to make workers more efficient by working 25-minute periods with short breaks in between.
The Pomodoro Method allows you to concentrate on a task for 25 minutes without distraction. So to get the most out of it, how does it work?
“I decided to use the time to take a break, to allow my mind to organise the information it had collected during the working day and to put myself in a better position to start my next Pomodoro,” says Francesco Cirillo.
