HOW DOES AN AUSTRIAN TIME LOOK LIKE AND HOW TO MANAGE IT?
IF YOU EVER FELT LIKE THE LAST YEAR HAS RAN AWAY FASTER THAN THE PREVIOUS ONE, AND IT MAKES YOU A LITTLE SAD, HERE IS THE FASTEST WAY HOW TO GET ALONG WITH TIME.
But we’ll get to that. For now, please take a look at this scale. It was worked out by Maximilian Kiener, an Austrian design consultant of BMW. It’s based on the hypothesis of the philosopher Paul Jean, and it goes like this: when you are 1 year old – this is 100% of your entire life. By the time you hit 50, 1 year will make 1/50 of your entire life. To see how exactly the perception of time changes when you are 5, 10, 35 or more years old, please go to a link:

Scroll it down and come back to us – we will show how to manage your time with the help of “tomato technique”.
Student Francesco Cirillo procrastinated his whole life, like a true Italian. One day when he was sitting in the kitchen, he turned on the timer shaped as plastic tomato and suddenly made a bet with himself.
Francesco asked himself the following question: “Can I concentrate on anything without being distracted, at least for ten minutes?”
Francesco could, the bet was won, and the Technique Pomodoro was born that day. Later it became one of the most popular time- technique in the whole world. Every six months, the new mobile application with the word ‘pomodoro’ appears, with some developers showing their creativity, by changing the main word to ‘tomato’.
HERE IS WHAT CIRILLO RECOMMENDS TO EVERYBODY WHO WANTS TO KEEP PACE:
1. DETERMINE THE TASK WHICH NEEDS TO BE DONE
2. PUT TIMER FOR 25 MINUTES
3. WORK WITHOUT ANY DISTRACTIONS UNTIL TIMER CALLS. IF SOMETHING WILL DISTRACT YOUR ATTENTION, MAKE A NOTE AND GET BACK TO WORK IMMEDIATELY
4. AFTER TIMER CALL, MAKE A SHORT BREAK FOR 3-5 MINUTES
5. AFTER EACH FOURTH TOMATO MAKE A LONG BREAK 15-30 MINUTES
Work is divided into time periods, which are called tomatoes.
One tomato lasts 30 minutes [25 minutes of work and 5 minutes of rest].
