It’s been a week now since I started using the Pomodoro technique, as mentioned in my previous post.
Honestly, I feel so much more productive, but not entirely because of the technique itself. Let me explain.
As mentioned in my introduction post, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer. It was a great experience and definitely worth the two year contract living and working in a foreign country. If I had the chance to go back and do it again, I would. (Of course, I would change a few things…)
So now, I am back in my home country. I find myself feeling like I did when I was a fresh college grad, escaping one world (academics) and entering into a not-quite unfamiliar but equally confounding new world (everyday life as an adult). I’m also faced with the trepidation of finding a job, settling into a routine, and overall being a productive member of society.
