Quiet Time and No Email Day

In 2005, Linda Stone wrote “The driving question is going from ‘what do I have to gain?’ to ‘what do I have to lose?’ Now we’re over-stimulated, over-wound, unfulfilled. Continuous partial attention isn’t motivated by productivity, it’s motivated by being connected.”

On the other hand, companies operate by striving for productivity.

Intel introduced Quiet Time and No Email Day a year ago. First positive results were blogged in June 2008. Where is the final report?

Thanks, Sophie.

    The full report has not been published so far; we’re considering how to release it.

    Meanwhile the pilot group continues to apply Quiet Time to good advantage.
