Here is my short review of pomodoro technique with pros and cons.
Pomodoro technique advantages:
1. Time management technique helps fight procrastination,
you can start working right after starting timer.
2. Increases focus , by complete focusing on task you will be able to complete task faster.
3. Breaks allows you to have a view of tasks you are working on
from different angels. When I take a break and relaxing during breaks
I usually get good ideas how to complete tasks more efficient.
Pomodoro technique disadvantages (only one I found):
Breaks can be a problem for people who likes to work in a 'flow',
so pomodoro technique timer will drag you out of the flow.
To solve this problem just simply ignore breaks and continue working.
