A Review of Dr Spencer Johnson’s “Who Moved My Cheese?” by Phil Auckland

As part of my staff mentoring training I have read a book called “Who Moved My Cheese?” by Dr Spencer Johnson.

The main theme of the book is making changes to get what you want in life.

Embrace those changes

The reality of life is that things and people around us are constantly changing and adapting to their environment.

In order to get to where you want to get to in life you will need to make various changes so that you can achieve the goals and objectives that you want to achieve.

Trying to get to where you want to get to may be hard, but it probably won’t be as hard to get there as you imagine.

It is all too easy to become complacent and comfortable in the same environment; an environment in which you are unprepared for change, reluctant to accept change, and possibly even scared of change.

The key to meeting and fulfilling your ambitions is to accept that you may need to make changes, and be flexible so that you are willing to make changes where necessary. If not, and other people make changes and adapt to changing circumstances, then you will get left behind.

In situations where change occurs you should try to take control of the situation, and not be fearful of change – don’t let change, or the fear of change, take control of you.

In order to take control of the situation you should try to react to the changes as soon as you can do. If you can embrace the changes that are taking place, and you don’t let change scare you, then you can use change to your advantage.

Change is a constant theme in life, so you need to pay attention to your surroundings to make sure that you don’t miss changes occurring around you, and then you can adapt to these changes as necessary.

If you are scared of change, or apprehensive of change, then you should think of the benefits that getting to where you want to be will bring, and use these thoughts to help motivate yourself into making the necessary changes to help you meet your goals and ambitions.

In summary you should:

  • Anticipate change
  • Monitor change
  • Adapt to change (and do this as quickly as possible)
  • Make the necessary changes
  • Enjoy the benefits of the changes!
  • Be ready to change again, and again, and again!
