There’s a really great book called “Who Moved My Cheese” by Spencer Johnson MD I recommend it as a good read.
Change happens for a variety of reasons and sometimes we are nervous or uncomfortable because we feel happy with how things are currently and we often believe that we have no control over the events as they happen.
This book is fantastic because it promotes the attitude that:
- We CAN control how we view the affect that it has on us
- We CAN take steps to control the speed of the changes we need to make to each day
- We CAN look for the opportunities that open up when one pathway is ended or changed
- We CAN come out of the change with new tools for managing our lives and facing any hurdles with increased confidence.
Although this book was written with workplaces in mind Spencer Johnson shows us that what matters most is the attitude we have about change and takes the fear and anxiety out of managing the future. “It shows people a simple way to successfully deal with the changing times, providing them with a method for moving ahead with their work and lives safely and effectively.”
