I am grateful for the time and energy of several PFSians who gathered to make our recent Sankranti/Pongal/Lohri session engaging, participative, and vibrant with their positive thoughts and perspectives.
I thoroughly enjoyed delivering a talk session on “Mindset Change” at our apartment complex, PFS (aka Purva Fountain Square) in Bangalore. Every weekend, the group meets up to discuss a topic of common interest, debate a new area inspired by a book or incident, or impart learnings from the real world.
During the harvest season, it was especially rewarding to connect with this community and share insights on the power of mindset. Our conversation was both enlightening and enjoyable.
Attached is a photo of the event. Thanks again to all who attended!
The topic was inspired from the book- ‘Who Moved my cheese?’ a book written by Spencer Johnson and apparently must have been shared multiple times as key learning material for several entrepreneurs and corporate professionals to discuss the Impact of Changes in our lives.

- Introduction: In the session, we discussed the main concepts from the book and highlighted its key takeaways. We explored how the book relates to change and adaptability in both personal and professional contexts.
- Real-life examples: During the session, participants shared real-life examples of their experiences adapting to change in their roles, companies, or individual capacities. We discussed the lessons learned from these examples.
- Interactive exercises: To help participants experience the emotions and challenges of dealing with change, we used props and interactive exercises during the session.
- Attitude and mindsets: The group also explored their own attitudes and mindsets towards change, reflecting on how they can be more adaptable and embrace change.
- Self-reflection: This session was also used as a self-reflection time for participants to ponder on their next best alternatives and possibilities for their own “cheese stations” (referring to the book’s metaphor of “cheese” as a metaphor for what people want in life).
Conclusion: We emphasized how the session can help participants understand the importance of being adaptable and embracing change in order to thrive in today’s fast-paced, volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world.
These are the key lessons from the book :
