A day before yesterday, I went to the office of the controller of examination Jamia Millia Islamia to meet Dr. Faizi, the controller of examination, for some career advice.
We began talking and after giving some reasonable advice he suggested me a book to read which titled “Who Moved My Cheese?” by Dr. Spencer Johnson. Apart from a very attractive book title, I have heard about book several times and many of my friends already recommended this book to me in the past.
So I decided to read the book the moment I stepped out of the controller’s office and today I finished the book and I am going to share my learning and review of the book.
This book revolves around a very short story of 4 characters. I would not be giving away the summary of the book since it would not be fair to a person who is going to read the book. Instead, I would share my insight from the book.
“Cheese” here refers to the things that we want from life, it could be anything, a job, a business, or a happy life. The problem starts when things start to change because we like to live in our comfort zone but if things are not working out in our comfort zones we need to change. The awareness that we have to get out of our comfort zone in order to get what we want is crucial in this fast moving world which is also changing remarkably fast.
Look closely , everything around you is changing too fast and if you are not comfortable with changing yourself odds are that you would be left behind.
The characters in the book are very easy to relate to, and they represent any person’s current situation, meaning you can easily identify which one is you and it’s fun to see the turn of events happening with those people.
If I would have to share only one sentence from this book which struck me most I would share this sentence which goes as.
“What would you do if you weren’t afraid?”.
