Offline and happy

“Keep technology under your control. So, it doesn’t control you.”

Why Offline and Happy? And what does it mean?

Why do we have the obsession to be online 24/7? Do you know that many of us live in our parallel online world? And that 80% of us go to sleep and get up with our smartphones. It is addictive. How can we get rid of this addiction or prevent it, in the first place? Let’s find these answers, together, in my Offline and Happy course. And much more…

share as many of my own experiences, tips and tricks as possible and explain what has worked for me and what has not. We will talk about gratitudeminimalismcomfort zones and self-awareness – key terms for finding happiness in today’s online age.

The aim of this session is NOT how to switch off notifications and get rid of your mobile phone completely. It IS about how to use your mobile phone to have control over it. So, it doesn’t control you. Let´s find your online / offline balance. And be effective in online instead.

My personal goal is an overlapping course to motivate you to stop for a moment and think about your own story – and also inspire you to change some of your habits to improve your quality of life.

Key takeaways from my course

– understanding of today’s technology’s key principles and why technology is so addictive

– motivation and inspiration for why to spend more time offline

– understanding of how more offline time can improve your life

– tips and tricks how to be more offline

How can Offline and Happy help you at work

Did you know that we break from work every 11 minutes? Full concentration returns after more than 20 minutes. An email at work remains unread, on average, for only 6 seconds. By the way, do you remember the last time when you were really bored? Can you imagine the impact on our brains, coexistence with others, our attention and productivity?

Therefore, we will learn how to:

– control our attention and keep our focus

– understand what is important and what is not

– understand the impact of continuous online time on our work and performance

– work with never-ending distraction

– work with multiple communication channels, effectively

– use technology for our own benefit

Who is Lukas Barda

I enjoy life, interaction with other people and exploring new things. I look for freedom, calm, happiness and purpose. I constantly search for new ways to improve my way of life and how to keep my balance.

After years of addiction to “being online”, I have found my own way how to get rid of it. I changed some of my habits, but only after one serious situation in my life, I finally realized the meaning of many things. In Offline and Happy sessions, I share my story and unique experience, and give some inspiration.

In terms of my work experience, I have spent a number of years at Accenture and Ceska sporitelna, in various roles and positions. I started as an IT junior, later delivering solutions in the classical way as a waterfall project manager and in the “more cool“ agile way as an agile coach / scrum master. I was working on solutions as an IT architect in the delivery phase, as well as in the sales phase. Including working with people – both locally and remotely.

Usual formats

I spread awareness, train, consult and help implement principles that help people to be more calm, more productive and more satisfied in life and at work.
I leverage my life story (I had a stroke at 29) and work experience collected since 2006.
On top of the facts, knowledge, tips and tricks I bring inspiration and motivation to be more offline and what it can bring to life.
Usual content:

  • a description of our online era
  • explaining why technology is so appealing
  • my lessons and experiences
  • tips and tricks how and why to be more offline and more calm

Participants say

The course was so inspirational that I felt a freezing on my skin. If I took away at least half of things Lukas said, I would be most happy.

Jan Jarčík

Personally – a developmental ride. Everyone can find something in this course, so whether you are a beginner or more advanced at working with yourself, if you attend, you will not be disappointed. I was inspired by Lukas’s story and his approach to life.

Linda Nezhybová

The course gave me what I expected :) It helped me to be better aware of what actually drives me to go online. It kicks me on the things I’ve been thinking about for a long time! It’s such a nice chat with the structure and inspiring story of the lecturer.

Luboš Konečný

The course gave me a lot of tips to improve my life in the sense of being more offline and still having a feeling of satisfaction and being at the very essence of what is happening :-) Thank you!

Daniela Majtnerová

As Lukas says, “You will either change the world, or the world will change you.” His workshop is super inspirational and underlined by a strong personal story. He showed me a lot of interesting things and I believe he will help me to change for the better. Thanks

The future is bright!

I have more plans in the real world, as well as in the digital world. But I have only limited capacity, and everything takes time.
