THE STORY - My problem was that I live in a rural area and had a terribly slow internet connection. What am I going to do?

Using the TOC Thinking Processes below I found the answer.

  1. List all of the UDES (Undesireable Effects)?
  2. Work up the Conflicts (Three Cloud Technique)
  3. Come up with a Core Conflict Cloud (document assumptions)
  4. Develop a Current Reality Tree using the Core Conflict Cloud
  5. Develop a Future Reality Tree from The Injection
  6. Trim the Negative Branches on the Future Reality Tree
  7. Prepare a Prerequisite Tree
  8. Prepare the Transition Tree
