Who Moved my Cheese?
Prakash Patel, Student (MBA), India

The book 'WHO MOVED MY CHEESE' is a very good book for management student.
Who Moved My Cheese was published in 1998. A parable written by Spencer Johnson which describes change in one’s work and life. Who Moved My Cheese was included in the New York Times business bestseller since release and remained on the list for almost five years and spent over 200 weeks on Publishers Weekly’s hardcover nonfiction list.
When Change Happens
One of the constant things in life is CHANGE. Each day brings a new life and a different experience for us. But our daily routine task, from the time we wake up until the time we lay down in bed again, creates a cycle that leads us to comfort. Such comfort creates lax and negligence in our character that make us forget that life is constantly changing. Then when change happens, we stress out, react, complain and be beaten up.
Even if it’s hard to admit it, in school, at home and in the community we live in, we were taught to believe in following rules and sets of standards that being curious and creating change is not acceptable. That being obedient, doing what is told and what is “right”, is the key to success and happiness in life. The attitude of obedience and resistance to change is brought by many in their professional and personal journey in life. That’s why it is hard for majority to handle and accept change.
Upon experiencing change, our initial reaction is to resist it. Either because we are afraid to lose the comfort of what we currently have or the fear of the unknown.
