Perfectionism prevents action and pushes one towards procrastination.
Using Pomodoro technique, winding up the clock and putting in 25 minutes of efforts will reward you with being able to do an ‘X’ and then take a break. After the break you can decide to perfect or complete ‘X’ or move on to ‘Y’.
The prospects of getting into the flow are much better when you’re rested, seated and focused, than when you are just hanging around and waiting for inspiration.
When interrupted during a Pomodoro, either the other activity must be recorded and postponed (inform-negotiate-schedule-callback) or the Pomodoro must be abandoned.
