Yesterday I got Mark McGuinness’s Creative Pathfinder Lesson 6: How to Handle a Creative Block (When You’re Supposed to be the Creative Pro). One suggestion he makes is using the Pomodoro Technique which was developed by Francesco Cirillo in 1992. The basic idea is that studies have shown we work best in short increments of time and with this technique you choose a task then set a timer for 25 minutes, after which you take a 5 minute break.
