But as my recent book, I Moved Your Cheese ( reveals, success in the areas of innovation, entrepreneurship, business growth - and also personal growth - depends on challenging assumptions and playing by a different set of rules...our own. In 2012, every person and every management team should set aside a day devoted entirely to asking: what are some widely accepted beliefs, or long-standing assumptions, that we should reject in our approach to life and business?
