Sayo: Jomi, I’m sure this guy has something do to with the missing cheese.

Jomi: AH! *****Attempted Laugh*****

Sayo: Ok, I’ll put my comedy career asides for a minute but don’t come trying to be my manager once I am the new CrazeClown. Anyway guys, BreakfastBant is the segment of the blog where we discuss serious matters that have a positive impact on our growth as individuals, in our careers and in life generally.

Jomi: This would include a mix of reviews of books we have found helpful in one way or the other and also personal development discussions.

Sayo: You get to see the serious side of us (Or at least an attempt :p).

Jomi: Today we would be reviewing one of my favourite books, it is such an amazing book that takes you less than 1 hour to read.

Sayo: The book was recommended to me a year ago, however, I didn’t read it until Jomi gushed about it, then I just had to(Mostly to shut her up and see what the hype was about)  but truly Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson was worth all the hype. Jomi: 1 Sayo: 0

Jomi: *****sighs***** it is always a competition with this one, I’m sure they would have finished reading the real book with this long introduction :). Enjoy x.

 

The book starts with a couple of old high school friends catching up over lunch discussing change that has happened in their relationships, families and careers. One of the friends shared how he used to be scared of change until he heard a little story that changed everything. “Who moved my cheese?” is a story about two mice “Scurry and Sniff” and two little people “Hem and Haw”, who lived in a maze . They all worked very hard daily to find one thing they liked the most “cheese”, they would wake up early and run through the maze looking for it. After several attempts they found a huge amount of cheese in one end of the maze,this made them all very happy.

All was well until the cheese went “Missing”.Scurry and Sniff were not surprised that the cheese had gone missing as they had noticed the cheese stack getting smaller daily, they didn’t overthink the situation instead they immediately picked up their running shoes which had been tied around their neck the whole time and went back into the maze.  Hem and Haw on the other hand got so comfortable with the cheese, they were so confident the cheese would last a lifetime that they didn’t notice the stack getting smaller daily, until the cheese was gone. They were very upset and angry that someone took their cheese, they also wanted to be compensated cause they felt entitled. Hem and Haw stayed in the same station waiting for the cheese to be returned by whoever took it.

Scurry and sniff kept running through the maze till they found a bigger and better supply of cheese, they did the same thing as the last station didn’t get to comfortable and were ready for change incase it came. Eventually reality hit Haw and he laughed at himself for expecting new cheese when all they did was sat and did nothing, he got over his fears and decided to leave the station and go cheese hunting again, but Hem remained adamant and wouldn’t leave the station.

Haw finally found the station where Scurry and Sniff had been for a while, he had learnt from them a lesson he would remember forever. When the cheese moved, they didn’t overthink it, they reacted immediately and moved with the cheese.

THE END

Sayo: I still love this story as much as the first time I read it, so Jomi who do you think you are?

Jomi: Cheese in the book could mean anything, what i personally like doing is reading the book over and over with a new subject in mind.I would focus my thoughts on relationships this time. We have so many Hems out here and i must admit i have been a Hem every now and then. People get so comfortable in a terrible relationship that they don’t realise how bad the situation has gotten. This doesn’t necessarily mean an abusive relationship, it could mean a non-productive relationship. The fear of not finding someone better makes us stay with someone who you are not meant to be with. An advice to all Hems out there in a non productive,activity based relationship, snap out of it cause you won’t see change if you do nothing about it.

Sayo: Although I acknowledge the fact that this book addresses change in all aspects of our lives, I have always thought it to be a business book. If you ask someone on the road what a secured employment or financial security means to them, they probably would say a job at the bank or a job with a large business. Truth of the matter is even these jobs aren’t secured anymore but a lot of people can’t see this or rather choose not to. For example banks in Nigeria have started adopting self operating systems, where customers can do literally anything themselves, people transfer funds using internet banking and some banks even have branches that have just machines, yet a lot of people can’t see what is happening around them.If/when banks decide to let go of majority of their staffs, said staffs would be on all the popular news blog complaining about how they weren’t warned. They feel they are entitled to their jobs until they choose to go. This book teaches us to expect change in everything we are doing, I’m not saying quit your job, but it might be helpful to start that business you have always wanted on the side. And if unfortunately you lose your job, stop wasting your time trying to fight the company just move on and move on fast.
