Why the Pomodoro Technique Is Failing You

Tonya Dalton:

While the theory behind the Pomodoro Technique is solid – giving yourself focused, intentional blocks of time to dive into important work is extremely powerful – the problem is that the times are way too short. Research proves it takes an average of 23 minutes to get into our deep work zone where we are doing our best work. With the Pomodoro Technique, you interrupt yourself with a break just as you’re getting into that deep work zone.
