The Swiss Cheese The­ory of Life!

Ten Take Away Tips

1. Life is more like Swiss than Amer­i­can or Cream Cheese, no mat­ter how much we crave pre­dictabil­ity and smooth­ness.
2. Peo­ple who are more flex­i­ble and resilient tend to get through the holes in life eas­ier and are less likely to get “stuck. We might not have con­trol over every­thing, but we have choices on how we han­dle things.

 

3. It’s a fact – The larger the holes, the sweeter and more dis­tinc­tive the fla­vor of the cheese. Like­wise, more “holes” in our lives can help build unique­ness and char­ac­ter. Take care of your­self by real­iz­ing that there is noth­ing pos­i­tive about being negative!

 

4. It’s a fact – The holes in the Swiss are called “eyes.” In life, we develop insight into our­selves and oth­ers as we move through chal­lenges. Fur­ther­more, Swiss with no holes is called “Blind Swiss.” Liv­ing life in denial is like liv­ing with blind­ers on.
5. Fon­due can never turn into a block of cheese – There­fore, liv­ing with regret will keep you “stuck” in a hole. Plan for the worst but expect the best.

 

6. Dif­fer­en­ti­ate “pro­duc­tive regret” from “unpro­duc­tive regret.” Learn from your expe­ri­ences and real­ize what tools you might need to move on and do things dif­fer­ently. With the right tools you can do anything!

 

7. It is not what actu­ally hap­pens to us, it is our per­cep­tion. Ralph Waldo Emer­son so beau­ti­fully said that “So much of our sun­light is blocked by our stand­ing in our own shadow.”

 

8. Behind some suc­cess there can be fail­ure. Do things dif­fer­ently and expect dif­fer­ent results!

 

9. Watch out for “stinky cheese think­ing!” W.A.I.T. ! What Am I Thinking?

 

10. Have fun in the moment, open your­self to oth­ers and con­nect, and embrace stress rather than seek to avoid it! Life is not a marathon, it is a journey…Enjoy the journey!

 

My take: This book kept me inter­ested. It is not dry, nor is it by all means bor­ing! This is a humourous light hearted self help book that won’t leave you feel­ing depressed about your life. It’s basi­cally ten self-help books in one, and it has very cute and help­ful car­toons through­out. This is one of the best self help books that I have ever read! Very infor­ma­tive, very enlightening.
