Who Moved My Cheese?

About 10 years after everyone else read "Who Moved My Cheese?," I got around to reading it this weekend. I LOVED IT.
If you are not familiar with it already, it is (at its' most watered down point) about preparing for and accepting change in your life. Or learning to accept and handle when you don't get what you want in life.
I've had to accept and just deal with a LOT of changes in the past few years. Some I have handled with far more graces than others. Actually, let's put that the other way around. Most I have handled with far less grace than others.
This book really opened my eyes as to how I was reacting to life. And it wasn't all just about my professional life. I realized I could apply it to my dating life and other aspects of my personal life as well.
For even the slowest of readers, this book can be read and digested in under an hour. If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend it!
(I have also read one of the author's other books, "One Minute Manager." I wish it was mandatory reading for all business owners and managers! Great stuff!)

  1. I first had this book read aloud to myself and co-workers when the General Manager of our office decided it would be a brilliant way to teach us how to adapt to the management's lousy decisions.

    It was condescending, insulting and inappropriate.
    The story was good... but the manner with which it was presented to us left a horrible taste in my mouth!!

  2. Loved that book and the One Minute Manager. I'm glad you reminded me of it. I'll pick it up and read it again. It keeps the mind opened to possibilities instead of trying to get more out of the same or expecting different results (insanity) from doing the same day in and day out.

    Glad you liked it.
