Ora & labora
Pomodoro is a technique to use your time very efficientily - in short: work some time (25 min) and have a rest (5 min). It helps us to stay concentrated and was introduced to us by Daniel.
More Information about the pomodoro technique can be found on the Pomodoro Technique website.
Working on a mac, I like very much the tool called - surprise - Pomodoro. It's open source, so you can compile it yourself or get a copy of it for free. On the right side, you can download binaries compiled from my Pomodoro fork, or support the original developer by getting the officially supported version on the App Store.
