I opened Who Moved My Cheese? Remember Cheese is here Metaphor for the things which you want to have in life, it can be anything. Haw began to imagine himself tasting and enjoying New Cheese.
When the change happened, they were already out in the maze seeing what they could find. It is a very simple and short book. The next day, Hem and Haw still walks to Station C hoping to find their cheese. The story has four characters. Hem and Haw, in contrast, waited around at Station C, complaining about their bad luck.
It turns out that the original story was really short, but it was so popular that people started adding more details to it.

It is arranged in three parts: a fable wrapped between two made-up conversations. While Hem and Haw were wasting time fretting over their situation, Sniff and Scurry had already found a great supply of New Cheese at Cheese Station N. They take it for granted. Every day, they put their jogging suit and their running shoes to find their favorite cheese.
They run straight from their homes to Cheese Station C every day, acting as if there would be no cheese left one day. How it affects you is directly related to the attitude you take.

Once, long ago and far away, there lived four little characters who ran through a maze looking for cheese. With a miniscule 95 pages of size 12 text it took me around an hour to read this cover to cover whilst on my travels. Haw leaves words of encouragement along the way in hopes that Haw will step out of his comfort zone and pursue a new future.

Yet, most people are uncomfortable with it. Sniff and Scurry keep things simple and cope better with change, while Hem and Haw over-complicate things. Cautious from past experience, Haw now inspects Cheese Station N daily and explores different parts of the maze regularly to prevent any complacency from setting in.

Two Sniff and Scurry were mice. Maybe we are more like Hem, who denies change and resists it out of fear, or Haw, who learns to adapt in time when he sees something better.
