I logged into my laptop a couple mornings ago to find that a couple pieces of software stopped working. Evidently they started triggering issues in the Falcon agent (meaning it was unhappy with something it was doing).
I hadn’t used pomodoros in a while because the 25-minute duration didn’t quite work for me consistently but I decided to give it another go and I’m glad I did. The nice thing about this new app (if you pony up for the one-time $20 fee) is that it will optionally write records to your default calendar.
I didn’t realize how effective that would be and those pretty little 25-minute labeled slices on my calendar indicating I had actually moved in a good direction were addictive.
Now I’m looking at that 45m gap until my next meeting and thinking to myself: I could get a pomo in and still have time to go to the bathroom and get a fresh drink.
