So tonight I read book number 2 – Who Moved my Cheese? Yes, the title is purposefully cliche, the story in it is pretty stright forward, but it is a hell of a reminder that embracing change is a good thing, and dealing with it doesn’t have to be stressful.
As trite as the book looks and sounds sometimes, I like it. Maybe it’s not as applicable day-to-day as the One Minute Manager, but it is something to try to put into practice.
BTW, my current list of “you must read” books in the “effectiveness/personal growth” genre are :
Dale Carnege “How to Win Friends and Influence People”
Benjamin Hoff “The Tao of Pooh”
Robert Persig “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintence”
Stephen Covey “The 7 Habits of Highty Effective People”
Spencer Johnson and Ken Blanchard “The One Minute Manager”
Spencer Johnson “WHo Moved My Cheese?”
Start at the top and work your way down. I have one or two I need to re-read (Carnege in particular) because the lessons haven’t changed, even after several years.
