Donât think that once you start using any technique suddenly you will become the most productive person, you should put effort into it, the technique and tools is to make your basic efforts to become productive easier, so itâs essential you should practice to become more focused and realize the difference. I remember I had a friend in my first year in university, he was a very social person, he was very funny, so in his room he had a lot of visitors coming, many times he told me he wants to study but he didnât have time because there was a lot of distractions, so his first year went really badly and he got bad marks, what he did he moved to another house, where he could have silence and no distractions and thatâs also very important.
How can you apply the pomodoro technique if you get distracted a lot by external and internal events, its becomes really difficult, but the book explains how to deal with distractions when you are working in busy environments like in the office.
