Book Review: 'Who Moved My Cheese?'

Is there anyone on this forum who has read the book “Who moved My Cheese”

Its am amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work And in Your Life

By Dr. Spencer Johnson

The book’s short summary:

Cheese

Cheese is a metaphor for what you want to have in life – whether it is a good job, a loving relationship, money, or spiritual peace of mind. Cheese is what we think will make us happy, and when circumstances take it away, different people deal with change in different ways. Four characters in this delightful parable represent parts of ourselves whenever we are confronted with change.

The Maze

Four characters live in a maze and look for cheese to nourish them and make them happy.

The maze is where you spend time looking for what you want.

It may be the organization you work in, the relationships you have in your life, or the community you live in.

Two of the characters named Sniff and Scurry are mice. They represent parts of us that are simple and instinctive.

Hem and Haw are the little people, representing those complex parts of us as human beings.

Sometimes we are like Sniff, who anticipates change early by sniffing it out, or Scurry, who quickly scurries into action and adapts.

Maybe we are more like Hem, who denies change and resists it out of fear, or Haw, who learns to adapt in time when he sees something better.

Recently the book was circulated in my office for everyone to read and the effect this change is having in my organization is just amazing. It’s a must read for everyone.

If you’ve read it, share with us how the book has transform your life, and the character you think you fit most in the book. As for me I think I’m more of a haw.
