In order to be successful in anything you need systems and tools. These systems and tools make up the framework of how you can set and accomplish your goals.
Most of the tools and resources found here are completely free. For those that aren’t some may contain affiliate links. If you use them, I’ll get a small commission at no extra cost to you. I recommend these resources because I have personally used them and found value in them. Do not feel that what I think works is the end all be all. I suggest you all find tools that work for you the best because that is what matters most.

This tool is a mobile app that forces you to stay on task or let a virtual die. The most social Pomodoro Timer out there, this app connects with your Facebook accounts and adds another level of accountability to getting your work done.

25 minutes on, 5 minutes off, that’s the name of the game. This is a simple Pomodoro Technique website that does its best to keep you productive. There is little to this website but I find that in some cases that is all that is needed to force yourself to get to work and accomplish whatever tasks you need to for the day. It also has the option to take a longer 10-minute break too.
