    These are from the book "Who Moved My Cheese?" by Spencer Johnson, M.D.

    Enjoy Change! Savor the Adventure and the Taste of New Cheese!


    Be Ready to Quickly Change Again and Again
    They Keep Moving the Cheese

    These are some real-life cheese rules.


    1. Never give your old cheese away in anticipation of finding new cheese.
    2. Never turn down cheese offered to you, even if you already have too much.
    3. Never turn down cheese offered to you just because you've never seen that kind before and have no idea what to do with it. When someone brings unfamiliar cheese to you, your response should be "I've done this many times."
    4. Don't let anyone else know you've found some cheese.
    5. Don't share your cheese.
    6. Cheese can go away at any time without notice, hence #5.
    7. Cheese can go bad at any time. When this happens, disregard #5 and go ahead and share your cheese. An added benefit of this is that it will appear as if you're finding cheese for others (Hey? isn't this what the managers are supposed to be doing?) and you'll be a hero.
    8. Do not ask for tools (e.g. software, or a computer that is at least as fast as the secretary's) that will help you bring in new cheese.
    9. Do not expect your head cheese (i.e. manager, but we wanted to use the word cheese as much as possible) to find you cheese. You are expected to find the cheese. (Just where did you think they get their overhead?)
    10. If you let your head cheese find you some cheese, it will be out in the desert*, or maybe even out of state (remember - out of state, out of mind. Umm, actually I just made that up).
    11. Be careful. Just because it looks like cheese and/or smells like cheese, it may not actually be cheese.1 (This reminds us of the Cheech2 and Chong3 dog story4. If you don't know who Cheech and Chong are then go to an antique store and try to find one of their records.5 Or you could look at their website. - editor)And finally,
    12. Never cut the cheese (oh come on, you were thinking this yourself).

    cheeser: a cheesy person, a poser, someone who adopts trends and/or beliefs that are trendy, dated or just plain lame

    Where's the cheese in this ?

    7 years ago Citibank approached me to concentrate on Property Sale by Private Treaty by helping NPL accounts resolve their dilemma. Did quite well until CCRIS was introduced. After that my sales dropped to negligible. But two years later the officer at Citibank called me again. They told me to concentrate on Auction Sales.

    I formed and motivated a group of small investors who quickly picked up a dozen foreclosed properties in no time. Then another two more groups were in the making. They heavily depended on me for the follow-ups. I couldn't cope single-handedly and the small group of investors had over-invested by now. The whole episode was short-lived but worth it.

    Now after 5 years, I am reviewing the scenario and something interesting was found along the way. I had a client who wasn't really interested in properties because he was a high stake stock market player. I managed to convince him that it is good to keep a few assets which are not readily convertible into cash. I successfully bidded and secured two very small properties for half the developer's price. He was so happy that he told me to purchase three more similar props.

    Today, he is broke and wiped out clean, lost all his money, house and business because he lost in a lawsuit as a defendant. But he still has these 5 small props untouched.

    Sometimes, what you cannot convert into cash is a great blessing in disguise.

    Aad Ji,

    If one is a good cheese maker, the rats relentlessly follow your trail.
    Anyone for rat meat ?

    The saying goes, earning money is difficult and even more difficult to save it.

    Probably goes against the International Laws governing humane treatment of "rats." But the real ones range from totally cute to totally dangerous.

    namjap ji,

    I disagree, contradiction is superficial. Reread it" The Quicker You Let Go of Old Cheese, The Sooner You Can Enjoy New cheese"
    Here action is suggested to let go old cheese after having the new cheese in hands.
    Lets reread the second one

    "Never give your old cheese away in anticipation of finding new cheese. w Cheese"
    Here suggestion is given about not to let go the old cheese before getting the new cheese in hands.
    aad ji can see if I understand it all right.:)

    A lot of the cheese conversation has been escaping me. It has something to do with taking care of your financial resources -- and protecting them against "rats." So I think I do agree that new cheese has to be on the plate before old cheese gets trashed. But maybe I am wrong. :D
