Bandwidth

DEFINITION

Sufficient means to accomplish a task. ‘Bandwidth’ comes from TV or radio signals originally and refers to the amount of space on a dial to allow for different channels, so the phrase has come to be used in any instance of how much space, time or effort exists for an endeavor.

“After the manager was fired, I told the boss that I don’t have enough bandwidth to do my job plusĀ  his as well.”
