The 60/60/30 Technique: Getting Things Done – JJ Orozco

The 60/60/30 Technique: Getting Things Done

It’s very hard to stay productive and getting things done when we are so busy with work, family, kids, etc.  Not only are we busy but we tend to get distracted on little things… so we procrastinate.  But there is good news, I want to teach you how to stay productive so that you can get more things done with something called the 60/60/30 technique.

The first thing you need to get is a timer (you can use your smart phone).  Next, you want to set your timer for 50 minutes.  

During these 50 minutes, you do nothing but focus on one specific task.  

You need to eliminate all distractions during this time (no checking emails, Facebook, twitter, etc).

Once your 50 minutes are over, you STOP working immediately (even if you’re in the middle of your task).  

You then get a 10 minute break.

Set your timer for 10 minutes, and during this time, you can do anything you want (listen to music, check Facebook, etc).  

Once your 10 minutes are up, set the timer for another 50 minutes and keep working without any distractions, then take another 10 minute break.

After that, take a full 30 minute break.

During this longer break, you can grab something to eat, take a nap, go for a walk, etc.

This completes on 60/60/30 cycle.

This technique will help you get more work done in 4 hours (and also make more money) than most people do in an entire day.


  • When you eliminate all distractions and focus on one single task, you are much more productive and get things done faster (you also do them better).
  • With the constant breaks, you never get tired or burned out, so you can remain “fresh” throughout the day.
  • When you use a timer, it holds you accountable and prevents you from wasting any time.


  • Always have a “to-do” list of the top 3-5 things, (write this at night before you go to sleep).
  • Always start your day by working on the most important tasks that makes you the most money.
  • Never check emails when you wake-up, only when tasks are done.
