Who Moved My Cheese?


A timeless business classic, Who Moved My Cheese? uses a simple parable to reveal profound truths about dealing with change so that you can enjoy less stress and more success in your work and in your life.

It would be all so easy if you had a map to the Maze.
If the same old routines worked.
If they'd just stop moving "The Cheese."
But things keep changing...

Most people are fearful of change, both personal and professional, because they don't have any control over how or when it happens to them. Since change happens either to the individual or by the individual, Dr. Spencer Johnson, the coauthor of the multimillion bestseller The One Minute Manager, uses a deceptively simple story to show that when it comes to living in a rapidly changing world, what matters most is your attitude.

Exploring a simple way to take the fear and anxiety out of managing the future, Who Moved My Cheese? can help you discover how to anticipate, acknowledge, and accept change in order to have a positive impact on your job, your relationships, and every aspect of your life.

Eye opener5 star

This book has impacted my life in so many ways that I believe people see me as an inspiration even when I am not inspired. I live in the south where the textile industry was the largest job force to work for. People that would get a job in textile would retire having it be the only job they ever had or needed. I was a manager of four different textile companies which closed their doors and a lot of people lost their jobs...careers. The signs were always there and always ignored. When each company announced they were shutting down, people would just look as if the company was just joking. Sense I was usually the person making the announcement, they thought it was my fault and would blame me. After reading "Who moved my cheese", I stopped making announcements or giving out bad news to coaching people on how to deal with change. Now I see people all the time that thought their live was over come up to me and say things like " the things you shared with me about change really helped me with finding new cheese and this cheese is better that any cheese I have ever had. Buy this book. You won't be disappointed. 55
