How can we bring this knowledge in our practice of Pomodoro. Keep a diary or a page. Whenever something distracting pops up. Write it down and continue.When you write it down somewhere brain can let it go. End of the day our brain trusts the paper more than us. This is effective even without the pomodoro mode. Acknowledgment is the key.

If you had an urge, a surge in mood, a longing to pen down your thoughts and you shied away. Let’s see what we can change in the mindset to cross the barrier. First of all it is is not easy to write, at least for me. Heck it is difficult to start anything new. The amount of resistance is immense. Let’s hack together at some of them.

Start small:

Lets’ just write down a few sentences. Lets’ cap it to 3 sentences. Remember those mini assignments “Write 5 lines on cow”.

Book a slot for writing. Start your calendar app and book a recurring slot for writing. This would be a dedicated window for writing. Bring it in your routine.

  • Writing phase: Dump your thoughts don’t enter into the edit mode. Just keep writing. When you stop for editing you break the thought flow. Modern day editors are also not helpful with distracting red lines and auto correct suggestions. No wonder lot of artists are seen with typewriters or pen and paper to write in the movies.
  • Editing phase: Edit like you have not written it. Go over the documents mercilessly, removing what is not required. Remember all the good tools you learned while reading. Bring them here.




  1. Sleep well: Give your mind and body the rest it needs to bring out your superpowers. Have a strict routine for sleep. Remove distractions, ditch that phone. Been there done that. Go to the next level, get a good mattress/pillow.
  2. Workout: Yes, sweat it out. No, tomorrow is not a good day to start. Today is the day. Pick whatever you want sports, yoga, running, gym. Whatever suits you/your routine. Don’t have time to do the 7 minutes. Don’t have 7 minutes. Do the 4 minutes.
  3. Meditate Wooooh! Haven’t tested this but all the masters say this is the way. You can carve your own way. But give it a go. You don’t have to take everything in at once. Take one step.
  4. Gratitude: Every day takes note of what you are thankful for. Thanks for them doodles Google. There are a ton of apps to help you document this. You will be surprised.
  5. Deep Work: Boy! so much to do, so little time. How to get the most out of it. Here is a link to something I prepared a while back. Most of the content is from Learning how to learn, Deep work, and how to learn anything in 20 hours.
