Key Points from Book: Who Moved My Cheese

He envisioned himself in realistic detail finding something better, much better

He reflected on the mistakes he had made in the past and used them to plan for his future. He knew that you could learn ro deal with change

You could be more aware of the need to keep things simple, be flexible, and move quickly

You did not need to overcomplicate matters or confuse yourself with fearful beliefs

You could notice when the little changes began so that you would be better prepared for the big change that might be coming

He knew he needed to adapt faster, for if you do not adapt in time, you might as well not adapt at all

He had to admit that the biggest inhibitor to change lies within yourself, and that nothing gets better until you change

He realized that there is always ne “cheese” out there whether you recognize it at the time or not

You are rewarded with it when you go past your fear and enjoy the adventure

He knew some fear should be respected, as it can keep you out of real danger. But he realized most of his fears were irrational and had kept himfrom changing when he needed to

Knew that change had turned out to be a blessig in disguise as it led him to better “cheese”

Change happens, they keep moving the cheese

Anticipate change, get ready for the cheese to move

Monitor change, smell the cheese often so you kniw when it is getting old

Adapt to change quickly, the quicker you let go of old cheese, the sooner you can enjoy new cheese

Change, move with the cheese

Enjoy change! Savor the adventure and enjoy the taste of ne cheese

Be ready to change quickly and enjoy it again and again, they keep moving the cheese
