Tomatoes + Timers = Brilliant Time Management Solution
I love the Pomodoro method because it's so simple - I'm on a five minute break right now. I've found a smartphone Pomodoro app that I really like - there's something really satisfying about seeing the little tomato icons line up on the screen as the day goes by. One of my favorite things about the method is that I can look back at those tomatoes and say to myself, that was time I definitely spent working. (Which beats getting to the end of an eight hour day wondering if you actually did anything!)
