1) Do not go to work. Call in sick or use a personal day. You do not have to come out to anyone in doing so unless you choose to do so. This will impact overall economic productivity. If you own a business, consider closing for the day to honor the goal.
2) Do not purchase or buy ANYTHING. This includes groceries, services, retail goods etc. No movies, restaurants, or entertainment -- nothing! If we make no purchases, we do not generate sales tax for government coffers or revenues for businesses.
3) Do not use your cell phone for the entire day. We will be able to measure the impact of loss of minutes on the telecommunication networks to demonstrate our presence.
It would be interesting to see the results.
