The “A” List
Assistance, Affection and Affirmation: The three essential elements of support. Better known as, The “A” List.
I have a friend from high school who has been battling breast cancer. She has such a tremendously positive outlook that I often forget how difficult this must be for her. She does a fantastic job (maybe too good of one) at joking about the situation and carrying on with her life, that her battle seems effortless. I know it isn’t. I know she’s fighting for her life.
I haven’t done a very good job of providing the essential elements of support to her. Of course, she lives more than 2,000 miles from Texas, which doesn’t allow for a lot of Assistance, but I need to do more in the Affection and Affirmation departments.
The three “A’s” can be applied in our personal and professional lives. Who do you know that could use The “A” List today?
