Who Moved My Cheese?

An Amazing Way to Deal With Change In Your Work & In Your Life DR SPENCER JOHNSON

Cheese a metaphor for what we want to have in life:

The more important your Cheese is to you, the more you want to hold on to it.

If you do not change, you can become extinct.

Smell The Cheese Often So You Know When It Is Getting Old

Movement In A New Direction Helps You Find New Cheese.

When You Move Beyond Your Fear, You Feel Free

Imagining Myself Enjoying New Cheese Even Before I Find It,

Leads Me To It!

The Quicker You Let Go Of Old Cheese, The Sooner you Find New Cheese.

It Is Safer To Search In The Maze Than Remain In A Cheeseless Situation

Old Beliefs Do Not Lead You To New Cheese

When You See That You Can Find And Enjoy New Cheese,
You Change Course

Noticing Small Changes Early Helps You Adapt To The Bigger Changes That Are To Come

He also realized that:


There is always new cheese out there whether you recognize it at the time or not

You are rewarded with it when you go past your fear Fear should be respected as it keeps you out of real danger
Change has turned out to be a blessing in disguise as it led him to find better cheese. He even found a better part of himself.

THE HANDWRITING ON THE Change Happens WALL


Anticipate Change Monitor Change

Adapt To Change Quickly Change

Enjoy Change!

Be Ready To Change Quickly & Enjoy It Again.

Move With The Cheese!!!

SNIFFY
Anticipates change early by sniffing it out in the marketplace, and update the corporate vision.

SCURRY
Quickly scurry into action and adapts. He liked to get things done, so they took action based on the new corporate vision.

HEM
Denies change and resist it out of fear. He wanted to work in a place that was safe and where the changes made sense to them, turning them into Haws.

HAW
Learns to adapt in time when they see something better. They were hesitant at first, but were openminded enough to learn something new, and adapted.

Whatever parts we choose to use, we all share something in common:

TO FIND OUR WAY IN THE MAZE

A NEED

SUCCEED IN CHANGING TIMES

AND

Every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity, an obligation & every possession, a duty. So it s our RESPONSIBILITY & OBLIGATION TO SERVE OUR DUTY WELL BY STAYING ALERT, CALM and by NOT JUDGING OUR SITUATIONS SUPERFICALLY. It is very well said by SOCRATES that The unexamined life is not worth living hence one should always explore all horizons and all possible alternatives in order to be successful and reach their CHEESE STATION N.

There is always new cheese out there!!!


Thank You Very Much
