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 traumatic.
  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 read: "Having Cheese Makes you Happy".
  Having Cheese Makes You Happy
  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 It.
  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. We’re smarter.”
  
  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 Become Extinct
  Who Moved My Cheese?
  
  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 Afraid?
  
  
  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 Old.
  
  
  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. He wrote:
  
  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 it was.
  
  To his surprise, Haw started to enjoy himself more & more. He stopped to write again on the wall:
  When You Move Beyond Your Fear,
  
  You Feel Free.
  
  Who Moved My Cheese?
  
  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 saw.
  
  The more clearly he saw the image of himself enjoying New Cheese, the more real & believable it became. He wrote:
  Imagining Myself
  Enjoying New Cheese,
  
  Even Before I Find It,
  
  Leads Me To It.
  
  
  Haw wondered why he had always thought that a change would lead to something worse. Now he realized that change could lead to something better.
  
  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 New Cheese.
  
  
  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 Cheeseless Situation.
  
  
  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 Cheese.
  
  Who Moved My Cheese?
  
  
  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 cheeseless station.
  
  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:
  Noticing Small 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 
  Change Happens 
  Anticipate Change 
  Monitor Change 
  Adapt To Change Quickly
  Change 
  Enjoy Change ! 
  Be Ready To Change Quickly & Enjoy It Again.
  
  
  Move With The Cheese &
  Enjoy It !

两只小老鼠嗅嗅和匆匆,两个小矮人唧唧和哼哼共同生活在一个迷宫里面,这里,迷宫隐喻了人类的生活环境,包括自然环境和人文环境。在相当长的一段时间里,他们一直过着幸福而平稳的生活,因为迷宫里面有一座巨大的奶酪,这里,奶酪隐喻了人类的生活资源、生活目标、价值体系。小老鼠嗅嗅和匆匆智商较低,靠本能生存,他们对身边的“奶酪”变化密切注意,居安思危,随时准备调整自己的生活方式;而两个小矮人唧唧和哼哼,虽然有人类的高智商和思维方式,却属于那种乐天派,四平八稳、不思进取。突然有一天,“奶酪”消失了,四个小生命面临着生死存亡的命运。由于不同的生活态度,命运各不相同。嗅嗅平时就谨小慎微,敏锐地注视着局面的发展,早就未雨绸缪,坦然面对各种天灾人祸,最早走出了困境;匆匆则迅速行动,在迷宫中探索,也终于找到了自己的生活目标;刚开始时,唧唧和哼哼一样,戚戚惶惶、怨天尤人,拒绝承认残酷的现实,梦想着有一天失去的一切会从天上掉下来,但随着局势的日渐严峻,他们已到了生死一线的地步。经过激烈的思想斗争和对哼哼艰苦而无效的劝说,唧唧决定独自采取行动,虽然冒险,却有一线生机。经过无数次的、永不绝望的探索,唧唧终于找到了自己的位置;而哼哼呢,他只有两条路:要么像唧唧一样,痛定思痛、置之死地而后生,要么像哈姆雷特,每天在生存还是毁灭的犹豫中贻误时机,注定成为一个悲剧人物。

但凡寓言故事,总是通过拟人化、隐喻化、卡通化的手法、简单的故事,让人类反观到自己的影子:或智慧或愚蠢或悲哀。两只小老鼠嗅嗅和匆匆,两个小矮人唧唧和哼哼,简单的人物、简单的情节、简单的环境和简单的故事,却共同演绎出了深刻的人生哲学。全世界四大洲、五大洋,共有200多国家、无数个民族,种族、宗教、习俗千差万别,60 亿人的生存状态高度概括,无不包揽其中。
