I'm Moving With My Cheese

           The book “Who Moved My Cheese?” has changed my life. It has changed the way I solve problems in life. It motivated to become a better person. There are four characters in the story; they are Sniff, Scurry, Hem and Haw. Each character has different meanings. In the story, the mice, Sniff and Scurry were able to locate the new cheese station but Hem and Haw, the little people, had difficulty in finding the new cheese station.
      I like the way the book was written. Dr. Spencer Johnson, the author of the book, was very successful in using metaphors to represent something in life. One of the metaphors that he wrote was the cheese. The cheese represents what we want in life. While the old cheese represents the old stuff that we didn't use anymore. Maze represents life. We all live in a maze, it represent the communities we live in. There are obstacles in life, but definitely there are solutions to overcome such. Dr. Spencer Johnson has put several lessons that inspired me to deal with an issue that makes all of us uncomfortable and nervous. Most people are afraid of change because they are not ready of the change in life. I like how the author gives name on the characters. He uses metaphor to make the book interesting and makes us, the customer, continue reading the book. I was touched by this book after we managed to analyze the book. There were lots of messages in this book. One of the messages that the author wrote was “Smell The Cheese Often So You Know When It Is Getting Old”. What does it actually mean? We know that cheese means things in life that we want to have, but everything in life does not last forever, there’s a time where cheese are getting old, just like the things that we own in life. Another one is “The Quicker You Let Go Of Old Cheese, The Sooner You Find New Cheese”. We have to move on and find a new cheese in life, cheese does not last forever, and everything will get older and older. We must face the changes in life and deal with it. The quicker we let go of the old cheese that we own, the sooner we find the new cheese. Change happens, cheese in life keeps on moving. We have choices to make, anticipate the change, and change. Enjoy the change! Enjoy the taste of the new cheese.
            This book was very inspiring and I definitely learned a lot of lessons from this book. One of the lesson that I learned from this book was how do we face the change in life. We can choose to anticipate the change and do change. But in other way we can choose not to change and stay at our safety zone. I learned that we need to always be prepared for changes in our life to achieve our goals or “cheese”. Most people couldn't move on in life because they were afraid of change. Changes are normal. That’s how we grow as human. It was also written by Dr. Spencer Johnson that “If you do not change, you can become extinct.”  
I recommended this book for people who fear of change in life. This book could change the way they face changes in life. Changes are supposed to be face and deal with. Most people couldn't succeed in life because they stay in their safety zone, but this book would change the way they think and hopefully this book can change them to become a better person in life. I would recommended this book to people who is willing to become a different person in life.

  1. The cheese is like what we want. So by the title "Who Moved My Cheese?" is like asking "Who moved the stuff I want?". So be flexible if there is any changes in your life. So like the book is telling not to be afraid on anything changing in your life like the stuff you want to is not there.

  3. This report or I guess a summary, is very concise, it has the aspects of what the book is and what you think about it. The life lesson of changing and moving on is described amazingly in the book and is reflected by being transferred really well to this blog. The introduction to the characters and plot are also very useful but a little bit over-descriptive. Putting a goal on the beginning of the blog also might help out.

  16. This is a very interesting perspective on life and the summary interprets it very well. 'Who Moved My Cheese?' sounds like an inspiring book that people of all ages can understand and relate to. Who knew that something so ordinary like cheese could perfectly represent the complexities in life!

  32. Great work.. The review inspired me a lot and the review has a good moral and world view that I can learn. I feel so inspired when I read the part when it say, "everything in life does not last forever, there’s a time where cheese are getting old, just like the things that we own in life." But I hope I can read more about the book.

  33. Well, you did summarize the book for potential readers and I'll give you credit for that. However, you focused more on elaborating on the story rather than giving specific examples on you used the lessons to add meaning to your current situation; specifically the struggles you are facing at the moment.

  34. first of all, i guess it is a nice book but before i read the article i did not know the real meaning of this book. while anyway good work and you explain it quite well, but you need to be careful of your grammar because when i read it there are probably small errors so be careful. good article. thanks for sharing.
