Best-selling author, time management expert, and work life balance specialist Susan Sly explores life hacks like popular productivity method – the Pomodoro Technique – and the Draugiem Group Study.

Scottsdale, AZ — April 6, 2016 — Best-selling author, speaker, and entrepreneur Susan Sly recently published a new article, “Life Hacks for Time Management and Increased Productivity to Achieve Work Life Balance: The Pomodoro Technique & the Draugiem Group Study.” In the article she discusses the specifics of the famous productivity technique and how to perform it for maximum effect.

The central theme of this methodology is that productivity is improved by utilizing “timeblocks” of intense focus and concentration followed by short breaks. As Susan explains, “This technique claims to garner its effectiveness in regards to time management by standing on the premise (proven by scientific study) that frequent breaks during productivity periods increase mental agility and acuity.”

She goes on to say that basically, this theory also falls back on the idea that the brain is a muscle that can be overstressed and that putting in more hours all at once does not ever equate to getting more work done.

Susan then shares how a 2013 study by the Draugiem Group tested the theories behind the Pomodoro Technique and found that the most productive employees were not the ones who worked the hardest or longest but those who worked using a very specific formula that Susan also outlines in her piece.
