Who Moved My Cheese – Week 3

For such a small book it definitely packs a pretty large amount of information. Information that we can use not only in roles as leaders but also in our roles as human beings.

Summary

Haw has done the near unthinkable and LEFT Cheese Station C. What awaits him back in the Maze? Scary monsters? Failure? Death? Any Cheese? Maybe all these things.

As Haw “gets back out there” in his pursuit of Cheese, he realizes a few things:

  1. It’s harder to find your Cheese when you haven’t gone and engaged in the Maze for a while.
  2. He realizes the Cheese didn’t just magically disappear, in fact had he wanted to pay attention, he would have seen it.
  3. He realizes the Cheese they did have probably had some mold on it even (GROSS!) but he was content with it anyways.

Key Take-Aways:

  1. What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
  2. Smell the Cheese Often So You Know When It’s Getting Old – Good advice for the cheese in the fridge to.

Analysis

The “things we want” aka “Cheese” ¬†will not satisfy us for life. Human beings are beings who actually WANT change because without change we shrivel up and die. Now we can have change within the “Things we want” of course which is why those things continue to interest us and why we crave it. However, if you are in the thing you want only because someone told you to, pressures from parents, or because you feel comfortable there; time to get back out to the Maze!

Discussion Questions

  1. What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
  2. What are you doing now because you are afraid?
  3. Is the Cheese you have now, no longer what you want?
  4. Is the fear of the Maze stopping you from pursuing new Cheese? Fear of others in your life? Fear of not finding new cheese?
