An Amazing Way to Deal With Change In Your Work &
In Your Life
DR SPENCER JOHNSON
“Cheese” – a metaphor for what we want to
have in life, whether it is a job, a relationship,
money, a big house, freedom, health,
recognition, spiritual peace, or even an activity
like jogging or golf.
Each of us has our own idea of what Cheese is,
and we pursue it because we believe it makes us
happy. If we get it, we often become attached to
it. And if we lose it, or it’s taken away, it can be
ONCE, long ago, there lived 4 little characters
who ran through a maze looking for cheese to
nourish them & make them happy.
Two were mice named “Sniff” & “Scurry” and
two were little people named “Hem” & “Haw”.
Every morning, the mice & the little people
dressed in their running gear & headed over to
Cheese Station C where they found their own
kind of cheese. It was a large store of Cheese
that Hem & Haw eventually moved their homes
to be closer to it & built a social life around it.
To make themselves feel more at home, Hem &
Haw decorated the walls with sayings. One
One morning, Sniff & Scurry arrived at Cheese
Station C & discovered there was no cheese.
They weren’t surprised. Since they had noticed
the supply of cheese had been getting smaller
every day, they were prepared for the inevitable
& knew instinctively what to do. They were
quickly off in search of New Cheese.
Later that same day, Hem & Haw arrived.
“What! No Cheese? Who moved my Cheese?
It’s not fair!”, Hem yelled. They went home
that night hungry & discouraged. But before
they left, Haw wrote on the wall:
The More Important
Your Cheese is To
You, The More You
Want To Hold Onto
The next day Hem & Haw left their homes, &
returned to Cheese Station C. But situation
hadn’t changed. Haw asked, “Where are Sniff
& Scurry? Do you think they know something
we don’t?” Hem scoffed, “What would they
know? They’re just simple mice. They just
respond to what happens. We’re little people.
Haw suggested, “Maybe we should stop
analyzing the situation so much and just get
going & find some New Cheese.
Haw decided to leave Cheese Station C while
Hem was more comfortable staying in the
cheeseless Station C. Haw announced, “It’s
MAZE time!” and wrote:
If You Do Not
Change, You Can
Meanwhile, Sniff & Scurry went farther into
the maze until they found Cheese Station N.
They found what they had been looking for: a
great supply of New Cheese. It was the biggest
store of cheese the mice had ever seen.
Haw on the other hand become more anxious &
wondered if he really wanted to go out into the
Maze. He wrote a saying on the wall ahead of
him & stared at it for some time:
What Would You Do
If You Weren’t
Haw now realized that the change probably
would not have taken him by surprise if he had
been watching what was happening all along
and if he had anticipated change. He stopped
for a rest & wrote on the wall of the Maze:
Smell The Cheese
Often So You Know
When It Is Getting
Haw wondered if Hem had moved on, or if he
was still paralyzed by his own fears. Then, Haw
remembered the times when he had felt his best
in the Maze. It was when he was moving along.
Movement In A New
Direction Helps You
Find New Cheese.
As Haw started running down the dark corridor,
he began to smile. Haw didn’t realize it yet, but
he was discovering what nourished his soul. He
was letting go & trusting what lay ahead for
him, even though he did not know exactly what
To his surprise, Haw started to enjoy himself
more & more. He stopped to write again on the
When You Move
Beyond Your Fear,
You Feel Free.
To make things even better, Haw started to
paint a picture in his mind again. He saw
himself in great realistic detail, sitting in the
middle of a pile of all his favorite cheeses-from
Cheddar to Brie! He saw himself eating the
many cheeses he liked, & he enjoyed what he
The more clearly he saw the image of himself
enjoying New Cheese, the more real &
believable it became. He wrote:
Cheese, Even Before
I Find It, Leads Me
Haw wondered why he had always thought that
a change would lead to something worse. Now
he realized that change could lead to something
Then he raced through the Maze with greater
strength & agility. Until he found bits of New
Cheese. He entered the Cheese Station but it
was empty. Someone had already been there.
He stopped & wrote on the wall:
The Quicker You Let
Go Of Old Cheese,
The Sooner you Find
Haw made his way back to Cheese Station C to
offer Hem bits of New Cheese but was turned
down. Hem wanted his own Cheese back. Haw
just shook his head in disappointment but this
does not stop him from finding New Cheese.
He smiled as he realized:
It Is Safer To Search
In The Maze Than
Remain In The
Haw realized again, that what you are afraid of
is never as bad as what you imagine. The fear
you let build up in your mind is worse than the
situation that actually exists.
He realizes it was natural for change to
continually occur, whether you expect it or not.
Change could surprise you only if you didn’t
expect it & weren’t looking for it.
When he realized he had changed his beliefs, he
paused to write on the wall:
Old Beliefs Do Not
Lead You To New
Haw now realized that his new beliefs were
encouraging him to behave in a new way. He
was behaving differently from the way he had
when he had kept returning to the same
It all depends on what you choose to believe.
He wrote on the wall:
When You See That
You Can Find And
Enjoy New Cheese,
You Change Course.
Haw just hoped he was heading in the right
direction. He thought about the possibility that
Hem would read The Handwriting On The Wall
& find his way.
He wrote on the wall what he had been thinking
about for some time:
Changes Early Helps
You Adapt To The
Bigger Changes That
Are To Come.
He continued on through the Maze with greater
strength & speed. He proceeded along a
corridor that was new to him, rounded a corner,
& found New Cheese at Cheese Station N
where he saw the greatest supply of Cheese he
had ever seen.Sniff & Scurry welcomed him.
“Hooray for Change!”
Haw wrote down a summary of what he had
learned on the largest wall of Cheese Station N
& smiled as he looked at what he had learned:
THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL
Adapt To Change Quickly
Enjoy Change !
Be Ready To Change Quickly & Enjoy It
Move With The
Cheese & Enjoy It !
