Who Moved my Cheese? Animated Summary



Who Moved my Cheese by Spencer Johnson “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” Robert Burns Life doesn’t always turn out the way we think it will. When change happens, a lot of us have a natural tendency to resist that change. Why? Simply put, we are afraid of change. Change represents the unknown which challenges our sense of safety and security. Who Moved my Cheese? is a very simple story about change. It’s about seeing change, anticipating change, and adapting to change. Now, that sounds incredibly boring, but luckily the author, Spencer Johnson, has put a cool little twist on a boring topic and has interwoven the lessons of change into the story of 4 characters: 2 mice named Sniff and Scurry and 2 littlepeople (the same size as mice) named Hem and Haw. These 4 characters represent parts of us – they represent the simple and complex within each of us. As Spencer put it: “Sometimes we may act like Sniff who sniffs out change early, or Scurry who scurries into action, or Hem who denies and resists change as he fears it will lead to something worse, or Haw who learns to adapt in time when he sees changing can lead to something better!” Want to make videos like these?
