The second law of thermodynamics is an expression of the tendency that over time, differences in temperature, pressure, and chemical potential equilibrated in an isolated physical system so as to result in the natural entropic dissolution of the system itself.
Stated more simply, the energy of a system wanes over time if there is no change or room for expansion.
“Fractional Math and the Second Law of Thermodynamics are keys to successful Family businesses.”
Fractional mathematics is a field of study in physics, mechanics, mathematics, and economics investigating the behavior of objects and systems that are described by using integrations and differentiation of fractional orders, by methods of fractional calculus.
To make change happen, must you break out of your comfort zone? Or do you have to leap out of your comfort zone and press relentlessly forward to build momentum? You keep focused on your goals, finding outside inspiration and harness the ability to see the positives, no matter how small, that you can successively build upon to engineer the kind of propulsion you need to build an unstoppable train of momentum.
Fractional Math and the Second Law of Thermodynamics are keys to successful Family businesses. In business the integration and understanding the importance, differences and linkages are directly in line with fractional analysis. The relationships between objects and people are the source of achievement, accomplishment in family owned businesses. Understanding the second law and the criticality of growth and change is critical. Organizations that don’t grow, add and accept new teammates are doomed to lose their energy and their ability to maintain.
In business, like life, most issues are too complex for six word answers. The amalgamation of personalities, different backgrounds and unique needs of each disciplines detail require communication, cooperation and collaboration. In business like life the days of simple solutions are few and far between. The expansion of the business, addition of resources are required to avoid stagnation and atrophic.
Growth is difficult.
Growth is challenging.
Growth is work.
In physics, mechanical work is a scalar quantity that can be described as the product of a force times the distance through which it acts, and it is called the work of the force. Only the component of a force in the direction of the movement of its point of application does work. The term work was first coined in 1826 by the French mathematician Gaspard-Gustave Coriolis.
In layman’s terms work is done when a force moves an object in the direction of the applied force. Growth requires force. In business like life there are few “Aha” moments. It’s a moment of clarity, a defining moment where you gain real wisdom – wisdom you can use to change your life. Successful growth requires applied force. Successful growth requires effort to move in the proper direction.
Brick by brick, step by step the keys are simple, Safety, Quality and Process all elements in the fractional math of family business growth. New products, new roles, new faces are all strides in the direction of defeating the 2nd law of thermo dynamics.
