Who Moved Cheese?


Over the weekend, Kobus and I popped into the “Klip en Klap” market in Pretoria East.  After snatching up and amazing deal on an old-school overhead projector, we made our way to the second hand books.  It was here that a book called “Who Move My Cheese” by Spencer Johnson caught my eye.

After reading the back of the book, I realised that this may just be sent from above.  I don’t want to go into too much detail, but lots of changes are happening in our house at the moment.  For a start, coming back to work has presented us with some challenges and a need for some additional change – what this change entails will in turn depend on other variable.  Furthermore Kobus has gotten to a fork in the road when it comes to his career and as excited as I am about the changes that lie ahead, I am feeling ever so slightly jittery about the transition.   It seems kind of silly when you see the words black on white, by that is exactly what I feel at the moment.  I know in a couple of weeks things will settle but this running through the maze until then is the uncomfortable part where we find ourselves at, at the moment.

Interestingly enough I would normally wait for things to settle and then blog about it, but this is a nice change!  See change is inevitable.

How do you cope with change?

  1. That books is brilliant! All the best for the changes ahead.

  2. I usually swim through changes. And once it’s over and practically back to “normal” then I literally fall apart. It’s like the emotions only catch up with me afterwards. I think that the only reason I swim through it is because I’m literally living on adrenaline while the changes are taking place. This can be a good thing and a bad thing and I usually just take it all in my stride. I saw that book a few times at Exclusive Books. Maybe one day I’ll buy it? Will see.
