Declare an email free Friday

Think about this idea for Friday: no emails. No checking them, no sending them.

If you want to get business done, pick up the phone or go see people.

Think it is a crazy idea? Check out this article about companies that are doing this and finding incredible cultural benefits from such a wild program.

I’m going to try and do this on Friday, with one twist: I’ll do a master sweep in the AM, around 9am my time. One check for emergencies and then, poof, I’m turning it off. Try a version of this and see what happens!

PS — Not recommended if you have clients who expect you to read service related emails on Friday.
