It’s what you do when your device gets stuck, ventilates too strong or an algorithm runs in unending cycles.
There’s nothing wrong with restarting. It doesn’t mean you fail. Often, it’s the best way to keep moving forward.
When you persist without restarting, you may lose time, perspective and miss the opportunity which unblocks what got you stuck in the first place.
When you restart, you don’t change what you restart with, but take what you have an give it a new chance, a new beginning. But there’s something special when you restart with people compared to your devices. People have feelings and memories, and both belong to the life experience shared with others.
Restarting with people means entering a new stage in a more mature relationship. The result is a relational evolution, unparalleled in the digital world.
