Who Moved My Cheese? My Biggest Takeaways.

This post has an affiliate link.

I’m a fan of Rob Dial’s MWF motivation podcast.   One of the episodes he published in December 2016 was titled the top 5 habits of CEOs.   One of those habits was reading up to 60  books per year.   I started thinking, are these people really reading 60 books per year or listening to audiobooks?   Then I thought maybe I can do the same if I mix and match audiobooks with my reading books.  


By the end of 2017, I already listened to 3 audiobooks (the shorter abridged versions).   My first audiobook was Spencer Johnson’s ‘Who Moved My Cheese’.   These are 5 of my biggest takeaways.

  • ‘The quicker you let go of old cheese, you will find new cheese.’
  • ‘The fear you let build up in your mind is worse than the actual fear.’
  • ‘Looking for more cheese is better than being in a cheeseless situation.’
  • ‘When you change what you believe, you change what you do.’
  • ‘Noticing small changes early helps you adapt to the bigger changes to come.’
  • ‘Imagining myself finding new cheese and enjoying it, leads me to it.’
  • ‘If you do not change, you can become extinct.’

I enjoyed the main story narrator in the book.   His voice of Haw’s character made me laugh.   I’ve been doing my imitation of the character saying ‘Who moved my cheeeseee!’


I love these parables with meanings inside the story.   It was the same with the Go-Giver.   I’m currently reading Brendon Burchard’s Life’s Golden Ticket, which has the same format.


Any of these takeaways resonate with you?   Anyone your are feeling in particular?   Please comment below and let me know.   If you enjoyed this information, you can support myself and the author of this book, by purchasing the book through my amazon link below.   Thank you!
