After a long time now I read book and that was “Who moved my Cheese” by Spencer Johnson. I always heard that it’s a great book. Early in the morning I held this book in my hand to complete it. It took me only 2 hours to complete this 100 pages book and I must confess that it’s a very good book. It’s a small story that will make you think about your present situation. This is the story of 2 mice – Sniff & Scurry and 2 persons – Hem& Haw, who are as tiny as mice and their search for cheese to survive in their world that is a maze. The mice were the guys who adapted themselves always to the changes around them and survived happily whereas the 2 persons weren’t so adaptable to the changes happening around them and faced difficulties. The story tells you what you are going to gain when you adapt yourself to the situations around you rather than to suffer at one place. The cheese in this story can be related to many things in your life like work, money, love, family, knowledge etc. The writings on the wall of the maze made by Haw makes one easily understand how change affects one’s life. After reading each writings on the wall, we can’t do anything except smile to ourselves thinking about its obvious simplicity and straightforward nature. * Having Cheese Makes You Happy
* If You Do Not Change, You Can Become Extinct
* Smell The Cheese Often So You Know When It’s Getting Old * Movement In A New Direction Helps You Find New Cheese
* The Quicker You Let Go Of The Old Cheese, The Sooner You Find New Cheese * It Is Safer To Search In The Maze Than Remain In A Cheeseless Situation * Noticing Small Changes Early Helps You Adapt To The Bigger Changes That Are To Come * Move With The Cheese And Enjoy It.
Simple but great message in book is that change is inevitable and we must accept it as it is to grow, to learn and be happy: * Change Happens – they keep moving the cheese
* Anticipate change – get ready for the cheese to move
