I'm following the recommendations in the book "The Pomodoro Technique".
He wrote in the chapter "Objective III: Estimate the Effort for Activities" :
"Record these available Pomodoros on the To Do Today Sheet".
I'm using the standard version of that technique:
1 Pomodoro=25 minutes
After each Pomodoro except the fourth- 5 minutes break
After the fourth Pomodoro- 20 minutes break
And then this cycle starts again- 25+5,25+5,25+5,25+5,25+20
How do I calculate the number of available Pomodoros that I have in a period of time?
Today I calculated that I have 11 hours (including breaks) for work and I want to know how many Pomodoros I can do today.
What I tried:
- I tried to calculate it by myself. I got an idea but I'm not sure if it's correct and if it's the fastest way (it's too complex in my opinion). My calculation says 19 pomodoros.
I googled this question. I found this post:
but it's not answering my question because he didn't mention a different time of break after the fourth Pomodoro, and it changes the whole calculation.
