Last night, at 9:40, a friend found out he needed to purchase an essential item asap. He had to deliver it to his partner tomorrow in the early morning. The problem was that he couldn’t get to the store, and it was closing in 20 minutes.
I happily drove right away to the nearest store and bought the item. I even thanked my friend for trusting me to help. It feels terrific to be helpful.
There’s plenty of time later to ask questions and figure out how to avoid this from happening again.
Next time a friend or coworker has an emergency, how might you act to turn a tense situation into an enjoyable one? How might you ensure they reach out to you for help instead of drowning in emergencies?
Thanks for caring!
