Time Management With Tomatoes (ok not exactly)

The internet, email newsletters and friends are all full of ideas and suggestions for how to get more done, how to save time, and how to do work better, so there's not much to be shared that hasn't been shared before.
And while around here we are fans of efficiency and productivity (hello numbers and books and spreadsheets oh my!), we are (ok I am) an even bigger fan of living life well and doing work we care about and desire to put our best effort into. 
Which is why we wanted to share this little technique with you that some of you may have heard of… The Pomodoro Technique. It’s been around since the 1980’s and the link below will explain in video much better than I could, so I will just share that for some people it is an effective technique to stay focused and get things done (and couldn’t we all use more of that).
This time management tool serves to provide motivation for many different personality types and serves to limit distractions while also allowing for goal motivated individuals to have mini rewards for staying on track (5 minute break between tasks where we can do whatever we want!). The next time you have a grant deadline, program management due date or other deliverable, consider trying this technique. 
And if you do - let us know if you liked it! 
PS. That timer on your iPhone or smart phone will work just as well as those cute little tomato kitchen timers. 😃
