Greetings, brother in mind! Yes, Autofocus is what I use, too. Cured me from CRIMP, too. And from GTD.
I'm now so deeply ingrained in the Pomodoro habit of working in 25-minute periods, then getting up from my chair and walking around for 2 or 3 minutes before sitting down again, that when I broke my timer last month I found myself ridiculously put out until the replacement arrived through the post.
I've heard about Pomodoro, but I couldn't get myself to actually do it, yet. What you write encourages me to maybe give it another try.
BTW, I've read Dan Brown follows a similar routine, only that he works for 55 minutes and then exercises for 5 minutes. Might not be the main reason for his success, but something to consider nevertheless.
