I Moved Your Cheese: For Those Who Refuse to Live as Mice in Someone Else’s Maze
September 26, 2013
Harvard Business School professor and bestselling author Deepak Malhotra tells an inspiring story about a new generation of mice who begin to challenge assumptions and ask important questions. Rather than just accepting their situation and dutifully chasing the cheese, Max, Zed, and Big begin looking deeper, examining and reassessing what they’ve been told are their limitations, and set out to chart a new course. Innovation, entrepreneurship, creativity, problem solving, and business growth —as well as personal growth— depend on the ability to challenge accepted notions, reshape the environment, and play by a different set of rules: our own. We are not powerless to change our circumstances. We can control our destiny. By analyzing our assumptions about the limitations we seem to face, we can, like Max, Zed, and Big, discover how to overcome them. But first we need to understand the ways we unknowingly hold ourselves back. As Zed explains to Max, “The problem is not that the mouse is in the maze but that the maze is in the mouse.
