Who Moved My Cheese?

...are four imaginary characters depicted in the story: two mice, named “Sniff” and Scurry,” and the littlepeople, named “Hem” and “Haw.” They, as the book states, “are intended to represent the simple and the complex parts of ourselves, regardless of our age, gender, race, or nationality.” The two mice, Sniff and Scurry, were very straightforward with their decision-making and did not overthink the situations they were in. They would rely mainly on instincts to influence their decisions. Things were very basic to them, if they saw the need to make a change, they would do it, not sit around and analyze their next moves. Sniff liked to try and “sniff” out change early, before it was upon him. Scurry was one to “scurry” into action, racing ahead of everyone to get a jumpstart. Sometimes they would make mistakes or get lost in the maze, but after a while they would always find their way. Hem and Haw, on the other hand, were more complex creatures, relying mainly on their beliefs and emotions to drive their actions. They felt the need to think about, and sometimes overthink, their decisions. Hem denies and resists change because he fears it will lead to something worse than what he had before. Haw is hesitant to change at first, but learns to adapt in time when he sees that change can lead to bigger and better things. All of the characters, with the exception of Hem, displayed positive character attributes throughout the story. The two mice, even though they might encounter......

Hij wil snel naar buiten maar daar stond Dim hem op te wachten en nog voor hij het doorhad werd hij door hem neergeslagen. Axel wordt dus opgepakt door de politie wordt veroordeeld voor 14 jaar cel. Hij belandt daar met nog 5 anderen in een veel te kleine cel. Daar wordt hij op de hoogte gesteld van een speciaal project. Met de zogenaamde Ludvicio techniek waarbij hij voortdurend aan geweld wordt blootgesteld en wordt verzwakt door speciale injecties kan hij zijn celstraf verkorten tot een aantal weken. Ondanks de zware periode doorstaat Axel het proces goed. En wordt dan ook al gauw weer vrijgelaten. De bij-effecten waar hij nu echter last van heeft zijn heel bijzonder. Hij kan namelijk zichzelf niet meer overhalen tot wandaden, want zo gauw hij de neiging krijgt te gaan vechten of zich te misdragen wordt hij misselijk. Ook wordt hij misselijk van alle klassieke muziekstukken. Hier is hij namelijk tijdens zijn procedure tot vervelens toe aan blootgesteld.  Eenmaal buiten wil hij zijn ouders verrassen met zijn komst, die hebben echter al een nieuwe zoon geadopteerd, die Joe heet en willen niets met hem te maken hebben na alles wat hij gedaan heeft.

Who Moved My Cheese

...and Hem and Haw represent two little people. This paper is being written with the objective of identifying the character in the fable which is least like me (or who least represents my views of change) and discuss his point of view. The character that I will select for this brief analysis is Hem. Application Analysis Hem’s character in the fable describes a typical person in an organization that has gotten comfortable. As the story points out, cheese represents that something or idea of something that we all search for that brings a level of satisfaction, completeness, or joy to us. Both Hem and Haw race through this maze, which represents where we go to look to find our own cheese, and finds cheese at Cheese Station C. After some time, there is a noticeable shrinking of supplies and Sniff and Scurry sees the change and anticipates it and adapts to it fairly quickly. Hem and Haw don’t and both spend considerable time wondering where the cheese went and how to bring it back. In some instances they were both determined to wait for its return. After some time, Haw decides that waiting is not the answer. Someone moved the cheese and he needs to find it. Hem is the stiff resistor. He has gone to Cheese Station C every day and can’t understand why all of a sudden the cheese has moved. He declares the change unfair and non-communicated. Hem’s character has become infatuated with having what he wants when he wants it, but as soon as change comes along, Hem is......

Of zit hij aan de stuurknuppel van het vliegtuigje waarmee hij wraak lijkt te nemen op zijn vriendin die hem voor zijn vriend Christof in de steek heeft gelaten? Hij is de Messias die zijn belofte toch niet geheel heeft kunnen waarmaken, Parijs-Dakar toch niet heeft kunnen voltooien, toch niet de mooie PJ definitief aan zich heeft kunnen binden en zelfs zijn door hem verfoeide naam voor zijn naaste vrienden niet geheim heeft kunnen houden. In die zin is hij te vergelijken met de hoofdrolspeler in De Onrustzaaier “van Willem G. van Maanen.(1956) Ook die Messias keert aan het einde van zijn avontuur in het burgerlijke Kampen de stad gedesillusioneerd de rug toe. Messiassen worden nu eenmaal in onze samenleving na een aanvankelijk geschreeuwd Hosanna uiteindelijk toch gedesillusioneerd gekruisigd. Een ander gedesillusioneerd personage is Frans Hermans.

Who Moved

...them and make them fulfilled. • Two were mice named Sniff and Scurry; and • Two were little people, whose names were Hem and Haw. They all had something in common; every morning, they all put on their jogging suits and running shoes, left their little homes and raced out into the maze looking for their favorite Cheese. One day, Sniff, Scurry, Hem and Haw discovered what they were looking for - they all found their own kind of Cheese one day in Cheese Station C. Sniff and Scurry (the mice) created a daily routine of waking up early every day and racing through the Maze, along the same path. Initially, Hem and Haw also raced towards Cheese Station C every morning. But after a while, they got more comfortable and awoke each day a little later, prepared a little slower, and walked slowly to Cheese Station C. One day, Sniff and Scurry arrive at Cheese Station C to find no cheese left, but they were not surprised. They had previously noticed that the cheese supply was dwindling, and they were already aware that they would have to embark on finding a new cheese source. Leaving Cheese Station C together, they began their quest for new cheese. Sniff would sniff for new cheese, whilst Scurry would scurry ahead to find the new source. Later that day, Hem and Haw arrive at Cheese Station C only to find the same thing, no cheese. Angered and annoyed, Hem demands, "Who moved my cheese?" The humans had relied on the constant supply of cheese, and so were unprepared for this......

Sometimes we may act like Sniff Who sniffs out change early, or Scurry Who scurries into action, or Hem Who denies and resists change as he fears it will lead to something worse, or Haw Who learns to adapt in time when he sees changing leads to something better! Whatever parts of us we choose to use, we all share something in common: a need to find our way in the maze and succeed in changing times. The Story Behind the Story by Kenneth Blanchard, Ph.D. I am thrilled to be telling you "the story behind the story" of "Who Moved My Cheese?" because it means the book has now been written, and is available for all of us to read, enjoy and share with others. This is something I've wanted to see happen ever since I first heard Spencer Johnson tell his great "Cheese" story, years ago, before we wrote our book "The One Minute Manager" together. I remember thinking then how good the story was and how helpful it would be to me from that moment on. "Who Moved My Cheese?

...of being scared. The character of Who Moved My Cheese? that I am most like would definitely have to be Hem and moving beyond fear. I have never been a big fan of talking in front of people. Whether it be explaining a small topic to a group of five or six people, or informing a class of about thirty people about a certain topic, I have never had the confidence to move past my fears and learn to become a good speaker. When it comes to any type of public conversation, my body instantly tightens up and I lose every train of thought in my head due to a lack of composure and mental stability. The smallest type of conversation can make me freeze up and cause me to become speechless. Any encounter with a stranger is definitely a good example. I usually stick with basics if I open the door for somebody or just greeting somebody, and I say “thank you,” or “hello.” Learning to somehow get over this would be not only beneficial to me, but to everybody that I associate myself with. Being like Hem is definitely not something that I cherish and envy. I would much rather be like Sniff, or Haw in the way they deal with change; adapting quickly and smartly based on the past and the present, and using those to plan for the future; or even imagining a smart and realistic future that can be achieved and working promptly and hard to achieve that future. Instead, I am stuck here, being like Hem, in learning to change by getting over your fear, slowly but surely. My way of changing for the better...

Case Study

... Who Moved My Cheese? focuses on four main characters there are two mice named Sniff and Scurry, and two little people named Hem and Haw. The four of them live in a maze and spend their days scurrying about in the eternal pursuit of cheese, however each of the four has his own unique approach to this hunt. Sniff is extremely good at sniffing out cheese, while Scurry specializes in scurrying after newly discovered cheese. Hem and Haw are not so single-minded in their cheese pursuit, but rather spend more time philosophizing about the hunt. Haw eventually learns to move with the cheese, while Hem remains locked in the old way of doing things, waiting fruitlessly for his cheese to be returned to him. One day the four stumble onto a piece of cheese so large that Hem and Haw declare that they shall never again need to search for cheese. They become accustomed to this constant source of cheese and push aside any thought of ever having to find another piece. The two mice, however, never stop exploring their surroundings and are constantly attuned to change in their environment. Meanwhile the supply of cheese is slowly dwindling and one day this chunk of cheese is finally exhausted and the four are left with nothing. Sniff and Scurry are able to take this new development in stride and scamper off in search of a new cheese source. However, Hem and Haw are not able to cope with such an abrupt life-altering change and instead have to sit down and take stock of their new......

...hond, maar je moet hem wel de juiste signalen geven wat betreft zijn plaats binnen de familieroedel. Als je een dominante hond hebt is het belangrijk dat je vanaf het begin laat zien dat jij de leider van de roedel bent. Je dient je positie continu te versterken door je op een voor je hond begrijpbare manier de gedragen. Sommige van onze adviezen lijken je wellicht raar of overdreven, maar je hond ervaart dat heel anders. Het is belangrijk dat je begrijpt dat je je hond niet slecht behandelt door je een dominante houding aan te meten. Het tegendeel is waar. Als jij je opwerpt tot leider van de roedel zal je hond aan jou de belangrijke 2 beslissingen van zijn leven overlaten: wanneer er wordt geslapen en gegeten, aangeven wanneer iemand een indringer is, wat hij wel en niet kan doen, etc... De stress van deze beslissingen komt niet op hem neer omdat hij niet hoeft te beslissen. Ook al kan een hond met een overheersend karakter deze stress aan, hij leeft veel rustiger zonder deze verantwoordelijkheid. Sterker nog, een hond met een onderdanig karakter die de positie van de baas van een roedel-familie heeft moeten innemen vanwege het (verkeerde) gedrag van zijn baasjes zal gestrest, veranderlijk en ongelukkig zijn. Een overheersende hond die zijn plaats binnen de familie-roedel heeft geaccepteerd zal regelmatig aan deze plaats moeten worden herinnerd. Deze “herinneringen” zijn niet moeilijk uit te voeren. Het is een kwestie van de juiste houding naar hem toe. Hierna......

...Alteration: My new favorite way to keep original hem on jeans December 17, 2011 // 117 I am short. There is no other way to put it. I’m barely 5′ tall. I think I’ve only bought two pairs of used jeans in my life that were already hemmed to my length…ever…in my life! My mom always hemmed my pants, even as I got older. Then, I started taking them in to a shop for alterations to keep the original hem which cost me $20/pair. I love how the original hem looks so I paid it. Well, recently I’ve tried a few different techniques and I’ve found one I really like. This is the tutorial I followed How to hem jeans I started with a pair of new (used) jeans that fit great everywhere but in length. I measured and pinned the jeans to the length I wanted them. I needed to take off 4″ from the hem so I measured just over 2″ and pinned, measuring before pinning each time. Do not include the original hem when measuring. You’ll need to decide how much you want to take off then divide it in half and pin all the way around. Now, sew very closely to the original hem, sewing to the right side of the hem. I reinforced this stitch and sewed around the hem twice because I wear jeans every day and need them durable. Next, I cut off the excess. You can choose to keep it, especially if you’re hemming children’s jeans who may later need the length. I haven’t grown since 7th grade so I opted to cut off the excess material. . After, I ironed the hem to help it lay smoothly. And now i have a......
