Work for 50 Minutes. Study English for Ten Minutes.

Time management specialists call it the "HOUR OF POWER" or simply the "50/10 Rule".  

So, what is it and how does it work?  It's very simple.  You focus on one task for 50 minutes and then you take a 10 minute break.  The HOUR OF POWER is supposed to have the following benefits: 

  • increased productivity and efficiency
  • increased stamina
  • improved focus

English learners who have trouble finding the time to study can use this technique several times during the day.  You can work better AND study English.  It's a win-win situation.
