Tips for Improving Your Time Management

I am a teacher and probably always will be!

From school teaching Maths and Physics; to being a Sailing and Climbing Instructor.

More recently as a First Aid Trainer.

And other skills working to train Army Cadets.

And now passing on knowledge of Internet based businesses.

Recently I undertook an Online Course to improve my Time Management. Part of the course gave me an Introduction to what is known as the Pomodoro Technique. I know this sounds very exotic but it is simple really – and it works.

Pomodoro is an Italian word for Tomato. Francesco Cirillo used a Tomato shaped Timer as he developed his ideas, hence the name.

It is probably one of the simplest Productivity Methods to implement.

  • Choose a task to be accomplished.
  • Set the Pomodoro Timer for 25 minutes.
  • Work on the task until the timer rings – no distractions!
  • Take a short break; tea, coffee, water, bathroom, gaze out of the window.
  • Every 4 ‘Pomodoros’ take a longer break.

For me, I find the 5 minute short breaks are good for a dozen reps on dumbbells or for squats.

I have been a teacher all my life. That doesn't just mean in School! I taught my brothers to ride bikes and go camping in the mountains. I taught Football, Cricket, Squash, Sailing, Climbing and Karate. In BNI I became the Education Coordinator. With my Property Business I laid on Investment Seminars. I taught my sons to Fish for Carp. And I still teach Maths and Physics to students who want to go to University to study Medicine or Engineering. Now I am teaching people the things I am learning online.
