Kent once again you have delivered unto us a bountiful harvest. I really enjoyed the idea of useless energy that can be detrimental to your overall success. "If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading." ~ Lau-Tzu-Priceless quote. I suffer from many of the symptoms of entropy, so thank you for shinning a light on the problem for me. Coming to your site is more like therapy than casual reading, and we could all use a little therapy. Thanks again, keep up the good work.

Thanks, Jerame...

I, too, suffer from entropy as we all do to some degree. Once we recognize that our natural tendency is "turning toward" degredation and disorder, and we identify the causes and effects of entropy, then we may begin its interception.

Thanks again...



Nice post. I enjoyed your insight about Entropy. My post titled The Pain of Losing: Emotion, Noise, Time-scale, and Information relates deeply to what you call entropy.

Thanks, Aman, for the comment and the link...



It's a work in progress and changes often. I'm always striving to make it as clear as I am able.

Thanks for the fitting Lau Tzu quote.

Allan Thompson

Entropy is what the apostle Paul describes in Romans 8 when he writes about having either a mind of the flesh (the death and decay of the natural order) or a mind ruled by the Spirit of God (He who creates and redeems).
Max DePree's book is still one of the best for students of leadership; he says in one elegant phrase what many take chapters to say.
