No Email Day (11.11.11)

Following my earlier blog post titled ‘The Race To ZERO‘, some friends and I have started a Facebook Campaign for a NO EMAIL DAY on 11th November 2011.

No Email Day (11.11.11)

We’re encouraging people to stop using email completely for 24hrs on 11.11.11 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 the office and work to reconnnect with the offline world.

We’re not anti-email. Far from it. It’s a vital and important part of our daily life and one of the greatest inventions known to man. However, it’s been overused and abused and hijacked by the spammers and time wasters over the years to the detriment of the whole human race.

If you sometimes feel like you spend too much time dealing with your emails rather than actually doing ‘real work’, please visit and ‘Like’ our Facebook Page at:

We’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas on better email management and being more productive at work and in life on our ‘Wall’ and any links to good resources or articles that you are aware of. Please also tell us what you will be replacing email with on 11.11.11.

(We’re also on Twitter @NoEmailDayHQ so it would be cool if you could Follow Us and Tweet about the campaign using the special hashtag #noemailday).
