WHO MOVED MY CHEESE

The simple story of Who Moved My Cheese? reveals profound truths about change that give people and organizations a quick and easy way to succeed in changing times.

Who Moved My Cheese? is an enlightening story of four characters who live in a “Maze” and look for “Cheese” to nourish them and make them happy. Two are mice named Sniff and Scurry, and two are mouse-size people named Hem and Haw.

“Cheese” is a metaphor for what you want to have in life – whether it is a good job, a loving relationship, money, a possession, health, or spiritual peace of mind. And “The Maze” is where you look for what you want – the organization you work in, or the family or community you live in.

In the story, the characters are faced with unexpected change. Eventually, one of them deals with change successfully, and writes what he has learned from his experience on the maze walls. When you come to see “The Handwriting on the Wall” you can discover for yourself how to deal with change and enjoy more success and less stress in your work and in your life.

Vincent van Gogh

He was only 37 when he died. This is one PowerPoint presentation you should not miss as it tells us of the beauty of the works of Vincent Van Gogh.

You have heard the song many times before but the presentation clearly chronicles that this song was written in memory of Vincent Van Gogh, as a tribute by Don McLean, in the seventies. It is rumoured that Van Gogh’s painting of ‘Starry Night’ was painted during his confinement in an asylum and that he sold only one painting during his lifetime as he was nameless at that time. That’s perhaps what caused him to fall into an abyss of depression which eventually led to his suicide. How tragic for him to have felt so hopeless and misunderstood in spite of being so gifted! It was a pity that medical science was not yet ready to help him.

So, sit back and be enthralled by the works [paintings] of Vincent Van Gogh.
