Leaving Him behind
No but I will definitely in the future!
Great value for the money!
This is one of my all time favorites. I gave it to my kids (going to college...one already out)
they loved it. The more you listen, the more you get out of it
Thought this would be just a review of what I already knew about my job specifically, maybe pick up a few pointers. I quickly realized this applies to all areas of our lives. It really opened my eyes and gave me a much better perspective on everything! I purchased 20 of the books off Amazon to pass out to others.
This really gave me a lot to think about and I, like many others, particularly like the line that goes something like 'what would I do if I weren't afraid'. Meaningful stuff! And very applicable to life, work and personal. I do have a few beefs though. Couldn't they have put in a few more real-life concrete (durig the discussion) examples? The only reallly specific one was Angela's story. The other examples were a little too general and not very personal. It would have helped to be specific and personal in contrast to the nicely vague story with the 'mice'. I would have found this helpful. Also, why make Sniff and Scurry mouse rather than human? I was wondering why anyone who would relate to simple-minded Sniff and Scurry rather than the more 'human' characters. Can't a Sniffer or Scurrier be thoughtful and smart. Maybe I missed the boat on that one and need to re-listen. Other than these points, I really enjoyed this audiobook and hope to apply the concepts of expecting and adapting to change to my life.
Very quick read with an overall very effective message about the importance of being someone who adapts to change. Major take home quote "What would I do if I wasn't afraid?" I liked hearing the interview with the author at the end as well.
An excellent, easy read analogy which reinforces the concept of keeping your nose to the ground and to anticipate change to stay ahead of the game. We easily fall into a mindset of what we have will always be there; this is a good reminder to keep your eyes sharp and your mind open. A recommended, quick refresher story for anyone.
The book is a very easy read in and of its self and may come off as overly simplistic but the story houses a many very fundamental principles that surround change and how to respond to it in positive ways. The basis of the book is based on change that is forced on you by any given dynamic. It not an attempt to rationalize whether or not the change is necessary or rational, its basis is on the fact that change did occur and the possible responses or reactions one has to it. Very well done simple story with intentional profoundness.
Too much time was spent in hyping the story. The story was ok but hardly ground breaking. Felt like an infomercial, kept saying how good it was. Perhaps if only the "Who Moved my Cheese" story were presented with out the hype I would have given it three stars. "Animal Farm" it is not.
Years ago at work I was on a committee that reviewed video's for staff training. This was one of the choices and I loved it. But I never got around to reading the book. I now feel complete for having done so. This is a short and simple motivator that is highly worthwhile.
