Who Moved my cheese - Adapting to change

Who Moved my cheese.

Today I was reading a very famous book called Who moved my cheese By Dr Spencer Johnson. Its a amazing self help book. And forced me to think at why do we feel so stressed out whenever there is a change in professional or Personal front.
Few key points from the book are

Having cheese makes you happy
The more important the cheese is to you, the more you hold on to it.
If you do not change you can become extinct.
What would you do if you weren't afraid?
Smell the cheese often so you know when the cheese is getting old.
Movement in a new direction helps you find new cheese.
When you stop being afraid you feel good.
Imagining yourself enjoying your new cheese leads you to it.
The quicker you let go off old cheese , the sooner you find new cheese.
It is safer to search in maze then remain in cheeseless situation.
Old beliefs do not lead you to New cheese.
When you see that you can find and enjoy new cheese you change course.
Noticing small changes early helps you to adapt to the bigger changes that are to come .

So the in short it can summed as
Change Happens
They keep moving the cheese.
Anticipate the Change
Get ready for the cheese to move.
Monitor Change

Adapt to Change quickly
Enjoy Change
Be Ready to Change Quickly and enjoy it again and again.
