Ze Good Deed for Day Number Two

Yesterday in the middle of the day I went out of my way to take a friend to an important appointment.  This particular friend didn’t have transport readily available to them on the day and asked if I could possibly help out.  I am thankful that my business day usually provides enough flexibility that I can help friends and family out in this way.

An important thing in helping out a friend is to focus that time fully on them.  Make them feel important and like you do care, ie making them feel that they add value to your day, being there for them, listen to what they have to say (don’t do all the talking), and most importantly don’t let a pay cheque be the reason you decide not to catch up – if you can’t help them on the day then make sure you make time for them elsewhere in your week or month.
