I recently joined a mentoring program within my company. I signed up to be a mentor and soon realized that I also need to be mentored. During one of our sessions, my mentor recommended “Who Moved My Cheese”. I heard about this book a few years back but was probably too overwhelmed with college courses to stop and read anything. I checked my local library catalog and placed the book on hold. I picked it up from the library today and the first thing I noticed was how light it was and then I looked inside and was greeted by huge fonts. This should be an interesting read. I guess I shouldn’t judge a book by its font although it does make me wonder.
Who Moved My Cheese is a book about change and how to handle it. The author uses a simple story to illustrate his point. In this story, there are two mice Sniff and Scurry and two little human beings, Hem and Haw looking for cheese in a maze. The book follows their thought patterns and actions as they search for their cheese. Cheese is an analogy for things we want in life; job, career, relationships, house, money etc.
