“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…
I 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 gratitude, minimalism, comfort 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.
