After hours of futile attempts at being productive, I tried to seek help…and I found out about the Pomodoro Technique! Don’t know much about the whole technique but I’ve just been making myself go through 25 minutes (one Pomodoro) of uninterrupted work, then giving myself a 5 min break. I’m supposed to continue that cycle til I get 4 Pomodoris. Then I get a long break ^_^ But I tweaked the method and have been giving myself a long break (which may or may not be the recommended 15 min) every 2 Pomodoris lol. But anyway, check it out if you are a serious procrastinator, which I obviously am. Like, I’m supposed to be working but I’m on WordPress now… Well I’m just trying to stick to my resolution…
Anyway, you can apply this time-management technique to the whole day, I think, to help you manage tasks well. I’m not quite sure how you can integrate it into your life completely, there’s a whole book explaining that which I doubt I’ll 1. pay for and 2. read, so I won’t be Pomodoro-ed. But I just love how cute it sounds ^_^
On another note, today Xr and I had an amazing dinner at Sukho! Sukho never disappoints. Can’t wait to bring everyone/anyone visiting me/us in Notts there, and watch them get their minds blown.
Tomorrow I will be trying to recreate Koya’s beautiful Pork Belly side dish omg am seriously excited for that. It’ll be a mix between Koya’s PB and China’s (lol) 红烧肉。我好兴奋！Been pretty inspired lately, I have lotsa cooking ideas and I feel motivated to cook properly, it’s either my pent up energy from not exercising or the procrastinating bug. Probably both. Oh it must be also because Xr and I have been watching Hell’s Kitchen…a habit that started after I watched Ramsay’s (thx Jessica :*) scrambled eggs video lol.
I’m not a fan of scrambled eggs but when done the Ramsay way, though troublesome and requiring more elbow grease, I get more consistent results. It is also very yummy (so says Xr). Yummy is always good so I will keep doing it the Ramsay way til I find a better alternative! Ciao
