Who moved my cheese?

Book of the month,May   : Who moved my cheese?

Author                             : Dr. Spencer Johnson

Type of the book             : Inspiration/Motivation

Related books                  : The Alchemist

                                           The monk who sold his ferrari

A couple of months ago, I had read The Alchemist and The monk who sold his ferrari. This is the third motivational book, I have come across.

The storyline suggests that-Change is inevitable and one has to move along with new things as the time goes. Thus lies the secret of success. The author refers to the "Goal" as "Cheese" throughout the book. We should adopt ourselves to the new changes and move along as quickly as possible or else it is difficult to survive in the current competing world! Sometimes, we may fear that changing ourselves might land us far behind than we are. Once we lose fear in us, we tend to gain confidence and the route to success becomes easier.

My 2 cents-We are here to excel, not just survive. Charles Darwin's theory holds good: Survival of the Fittest!
