Tomighty : Desktop Timer for Effective Time Management

Tomighty is a little timer that sits in your Windows desktop’s system tray and using which you can effectively manage your time. This little application is designed using Oracle Java and works on the Pomodoro technique of managing the time. In the Pomodoro technique, you divide your work day in short periods of 25 minutes separated by 5 minute breaks. You have to finish all tasks in 25 minutes or less. This way you are training yourself to be faster and learn to finish tasks in a limited period of time.

Pomodoro technique trains you to be focused on the goal until you finish the task. Instead of complaining about the lack of time, you are training yourself to be faster and use only 25 minutes to finish each of the tasks. Usually, it requires a tomato shaped timer that is used for 25 minute timer. But if you are using Windows or macOS then you can use the tomato lookalike timer Tomighty.


After installing Tomighty you can click on its icon in the system tray (notification area). You can click on Start Pomodoro to begin 25 minutes long timer. Within these 25 minutes, you should force yourself to finish a task at hand. After 25 minutes are over (or if you have finished the task), you can take 5 minutes break. After completing four 25 minute tasks (first three of which are followed by 5 minute breaks) you can take a long break of 15 minutes.


Even though the standard timer for Pomodoro technique is 25 minutes long and the breaks are 5 minutes or 15 minutes, you can customize these timers for your own necessities from the Tomighty settings. You can also change the user interface by selecting a different theme. There are options for choosing different sounds for timers and you can make the window automatically hide so that you can see the timer in the notification area itself.


Tomighty is a great way to manage your time using the Pomodoro technique. It will surely improve your life and can make you much more efficient and faster in your profession.
