A Tomato Changed My Life...
I was the queen at multi tasking!
20 tabs open and thinking I was super busy and super important because I was super busy...err ok
Then one day I couldn’t get out of bed
I had so many plates spinning at the same time
My plates ended up smashing to the ground with a mighty crash!
It took me to the point of burnout to realise something was up
It took a HUGE strain on my health to finally make some changes
I knew I needed to change my viewpoint
Being busy doesn’t mean your efficient OR important OR successful
I now “work” 4.5 days in a job I love
I have time for myself
I have time for my family
I have time for fun
I have time for travel
I have time for my business
I have time for my university masters degree
I’m no longer the swan gliding gracefully but legs going like the clappers underneath
Do you get this?
People ask me how I do it.....
How did I design this life where I can do all of this without breaking a sweat
How did I design a life where I work 1 day a week and do the same amount I used to do in 5 days?
A tomato is (part) of the answer .....
Yes a tomato changed my life! (Is this my new book title?)
This little beauty helps me put my day into 25 minute batches
It's called a Pomodoro Tomato
It helps you batch your time into 25 minute batches
You totally focus on one task for 25 minutes
No jumping around
No multi tasking
No checking emails
Just totally focused on ONE task for 25 minutes (If a task takes you longer then you can batch it into other pomodoro tomato sections)
So what are the benefits?
You actually feel like you've done some work (You know the feeling when you can't remember what you've spent your day doing?!) This feeling will be gone
You'll feel a sense of achievement. of focus, of pride
You'll become more productive (the brain wasn't made to multi task0
You'll feel calmer and much less stressed
You'll feel able to do more and take more on
The simple things in life really are the best....
I’m not greedy I’m happy to share this life changing thing with you!
This trusty tomato YOU NOW need to make your best friend
