Procrastination is such a thing which delays our work to last date. A person with procrastination always has a burden in his brain. This type of burden is sometimes known as the panic monster because such people always have a panic mindset while doing important work.

This type of panic situation is created by a monkey in our brain which provoke us to leave our important work and enjoy that time which after creates panic situation due to overburden and we call this monkey a Instant Gratification Monkey.

We have a solution or this type of procrastination and this solution is known as Pomodoro Technique.

This technique was introduced by Francesco Cirillo in the early 1980’s.

There are six steps in the original technique:

  1. Decide on the task to be done.
  2. Set the pomodoro timer (traditionally to 25 minutes).
  3. Work on the task.
  4. End work when the timer rings and put a checkmark on a piece of paper.
  5. If you have fewer than four checkmarks, take a short break (3–5 minutes) and then return to step 2; otherwise continue to step 6.
  6. After four pomodoros, take a longer break (15–30 minutes), reset your checkmark count to zero, then go to step 1.

I personally used this technique while studying and I saw great change in my output and I also saw that somehow I got very little mental disturbances which had a great result.

I think this technique can help me while achieving my goals. And I also want to mention that this technique is simple but has great impact on us.
