Introduction

Francesco Cirillo is a German-Italian programmer and owner of an IT consultancy. Way back in college in the 1980s, he read a study that suggested chunking work into manageable 25 to 40-minute time blocks, to make it easier. Based on this study, he created his own time management system using his tomato-shaped timer, a pencil, and two lists on paper.

But it wasn't until later that what's now the most widely used productivity technique in the world took the world by storm. Cirillo started sharing his technique openly in the '90s and published a book of the same name in 2006, where he describes it in detail.

Today, over 2 million people use The Pomodoro Technique. Are you ready to give it a try?
