Soleil, I'm pretty sure he's implementing a technique called "the pomodori method"..... It was invented by a student trying to prepare for university exams(I think don't rely too much on me recount of the history of it's coming into fruition) and he was timing himself with his study sessions using the cooking timer that his mother had in the kitchen. I think it was an apple shaped time which is a "pomme" in french like I mentioned I'm not sure how the whole history goes. It was a long time ago that I heard of it.I tried it thouygj. It didn't work for me. I still was getting really sidetracked in small tasks within that one isolated task for the 20 minutes. I'm going to try it again. Actually was thinking about it just this morning ironically. And Just as a heads up to anyone else wanting to give it a try or retry like myself. There's all kinds of pomodori apps on Google Play Store some of them are kind of overwhelming and way too much going on that you're kind of doing the app within doing the tasks so check out a few of them and I personally would stick with the simplest one that just puts a timer on turns your phone kind of off except for different emergency type notifications you allow for it to come through say if limited distraction and it makes a ding sound and you start certain sound for when you finish certain sound when you put it in your break time and then a certain center restart your next task and it's got checklist so that's what I remember of it anyways. If you guys find one that's really good please let me know I'll give it a try again I'll do anything to get my apartment in order at this point!
