Lean Quote: No Email Day - 11.11.11

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

"Face-to-face communication remains the most powerful human interaction." — Kathleen Begley, Ed.D., author of Face-to-Face Communication

Today is No Email Day, a campaign to encourage people to stop using email for 24 hours for greater productivity and to realize how email has become abused/overused. Can your organization handle no email for an entire day?

The No Email Day manifesto suggests switching off your email completely to help you get inspired and focus on your real work—for just one day.

NO EMAIL DAY is a campaign to encourage people to stop using email completely for 24hrs on 11th November 2011 and do something more productive with the time saved instead.

This could simply involve other forms of communication like actually talking to someone face to face, picking up the phone or even writing a letter (remember those?) or spending time away from work to reconnnect with the offline world.



Ever wonder how much time you are on email? What would do if you weren't on email today? So how will spend your day today?
