Has someone moved your cheese?

Following last week’s post about coping with change, I was kindly lent ‘Who Moved My Cheese?’ by Spencer Johnson. This book’s sub title is An Amazing Way To Deal With Change in Your Work and in Your Life.

Like Fish! before, it’s a short book and easy to read, I got through it in less than an hour. More importantly it couldn’t have been more pertinent to my last post. “So what exactly is it? And why should I read it?” I hear you ask.

It is the simple story of two mice and two littlepeople who live in a large maze. After a long search all of them find a plentiful source of cheese which keeps them comfortably fed for a long time; the crux of the story though is how each of them copes when the cheese runs out.

For anyone coping with change it offers some interesting observations about the impact of change and how the way you approach change can affect it’s impact on you. Interestingly it provides the opportunity to take away the lessons and observations which are most relevant to you. It will help you understand how and why you cope with change at the moment and perhaps give you enlightenment about other ways you could behave.

So if someone’s moved or moving your cheese maybe this book will help you find the solution you’re looking for?

Tina coached me in the early days of my business and really helped me clarify who my target clients were and why they would want to work with me. She gave me the confidence that I could approach any contacts, new or old. I would recommend her to anyone needing to take their sales to the next level.
