Before I share how I use the Pomodoro technique, I don't want to assume that you know what it is so...
According to Wikipedia, "The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. Each interval is known as a pomodoro, from the Italian word for 'tomato', after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that Cirillo used as a university student."
The key word in the above description is traditionally.
That's an important word for the sake of this blog post.
First, there are no Pomodoro police
You can use the traditional Pomodoro Technique of 25/5 which means you work - fully focused - for 25 minutes and then take a minute break.
However, if you create your own Pomodoro timing, you won't go to time management jail! There is no Pomodoro Technique police.
I've been telling anyone...
