Thermodynamics are the Physics discipline that studies the flow of heat. So does the name say, right?
However, it might sound way too abstract for general understanding. 😱
Let me offer you a small spark, so we all follow! 😉
Think you are in Lithuania and you feel cold in your house during winter. ❄
Time to light on the hearth, right? 🔥
Well, technically your house is getting colder and you need to compensate with equal heat flow released, as the one that is flowing out. 🤓
There you are, you already knew the 0th, 1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics!
Your house gets cold, as it tends to equalize its temperature with the surroundings'. (0th Law)
To keep your home warm and cozy, you need to compensate with equal amount of energy flow leaving the house. (1st Law)
And heat only flows from hot to cold sources! (2nd Law) Pitiful, right? Well, certainly happens too during Spanish summer. But, in this case, heat comes in!!🌡☀
In either case, winter in Lithuania or summer in Spain, one needs to fight against inertia. 💪
Now you just refreshed your Thermodynamics. 🤜🤛
The book Zero To One by Peter Thiel is a very daring way to start a business. His idea is that copying what others do is very easy, but that won’t change the world. If we want to really build the future, we have to create something unique, that will allow us to go from zero to one. We have to be brave and courageous and daring and to go against the tide. It is not a matter of fortune, though. We have to have a clear goal in mind and start from a small niche and to build it up until we create a monopoly that will allow us to gain enough earning to reinvest for the good of the whole society.
