If these are left unattended, no new energy is provided and they will diminish.
In business, if we assume that our systems, relationships, operations, sales, and marketing can be left unattended and unrefreshed, they will break. Machines do not work without maintenance, repair, and tuning, nor will we or our companies.
Do you find that you’re asking yourself what to do to counteract personal and organizational entropy? Is there a way to make certain that your relationships with others, and with yourself, are well nurtured and thriving? Some ways to break the law of entropy include:

#1 “If you’re alive and breathing as an entrepreneur, you need a coach. I’m not only a coach, I’m also the CEO of a company of 40 people. I’ve hired half a dozen coaches, been the beneficiary of a couple dozen mentors, and worked with multiple therapists. Your companies only expand at the rate of your own growth.

A common negotiating ploy is called an “agent without authority.” This is a person who can negotiate but is not authorized to make the final deal. No matter what is agreed upon, the agent without authority must check with someone else before confirming the terms of the agreement.
The first corollary of this law is: “You must determine in advance if the other party has the authority to make the deal.” Ask the person if he or she is authorized to act for the company or client. If not, you must be cautious about the positions you take and the concessions you offer.
The second corollary of this law is: “When dealing with someone who cannot make the final decision, you must represent yourself as being unable to make the final decision either.” Fight fire with fire. If the other person cannot make the final decision, tell him that you are in the same position. This tactic levels the playing field and increases your flexibility in the case of an unacceptable counteroffer.
