Dial up internet….
Elation when we finally think we are there, hearing the bang and crash of ocean waves as our desktops finally connect to the internet but at the same time immediate frustration of being cut off or logged out or just nothing happening at all.
The demand was higher than the supply, the bandwidth was just not enough. It crashed often!
Humans figured out how they could increase the bandwidth of the internet which has got us to where we are today.
But the human operating system is different, increasing our bandwidth is not so straight forward.
If we push ourselves too hard we face similar issues to the early internet. It will hang and it will crash and it will often need resetting.
Understand your bandwidth and live your life accordingly.
