Effective time management

Many of us have shifted to working from home to protect ourselves against potential exposure to the coronavirus. But without a proper office space it's all too easy to be distracted and to get very little done. Time management is essential in today’s business life. Scientists found out that you can increase your efficiency by breaking down your work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by 5 to 10-minute breaks. A technique that simultaneous interpreters constantly follow - we’ll take turns every 20 to 30 minutes. But you can use this principle in your office as well. Just set your alarm or let Siri do it for you. And if you prefer a more colourful method, choose a 1980s-style tomato-shaped kitchen timer - freely adapted from the famous Pomodoro Technique! Red promotes motivation and is fun - what else do you need? And if you have neither clock nor iPhone, just use the practical Tomato Timer online and get started.
