Freebie: Pomodoro Technique Stickers

Have you ever used the Pomodoro technique for productivity? I love it for getting myself focused on a task that’s going to take a while. The basic idea behind a Pomodoro (which is Italian for tomato – the creator used a tomato kitchen timer) is working for timed sessions and taking a short break. Here’s a little rundown from LifeHacker: Choose a task to be accomplished. Set the Pomodoro to 25 minutes (the Pomodoro is the timer) Work on the task until the Pomodoro rings, then put a check on your sheet of paper Take a short break (5 minutes is OK) Every 4 Pomodoros take a longer break It can be really helpful when you have a big task and need to get long work sessions in. These little Pomodoro stickers will help you track your work! These stickers are a little smaller than 1.5 inches wide so they should work in an Erin Condren or MAMBI Happy Planner.

Freebie: Daily Word Count Tracking Stickers

I have been inching toward planner nirvana, integrating my love of bright colors and functionality. I’ve also recently been using a strategy to meet my word count by breaking up my goal for the day into small, manageable chunks. Each chunk earns a check mark, or filled-in box, and I finally decided to go from a quickly scribbled chart on my notepad to a structured format. My stickers as printed have 8 boxes because my daily word goal is 4000 words – which makes each box 500. But the download has 10 boxes, which makes it easy to divide up for your word goal. 🙂 Here’s just a couple tips and reminders: These stickers are 1.5 inches wide so they should work in an Erin Condren or MAMBI Happy Planner. I create most of my stickers with an offset, but these are already EXACTLY the right size to fit the box. If you have a cutting machine (Silhouette or Cricut), don’t do an offset here. If you cut by hand, just cut on the lines and you’re golden. 🙂 When you print, be sure that you tell your printer not to scale. Select “Print Actual Size,” or whichever option your printer gives that prints true to size. Do not “Fit to Page” or anything, as it may print the wrong size. The sheets have a scale on the bottom. 🙂 And one last thing! These stickers are for your personal use. You may not resell them or claim the design as your own, whether my original or with your own alterations. However, if you would like to share with friends, that’s awesome!...
