Working At Sacc Essay

1336 words - 6 pages

People define work as different things, but I define work as doing something that you will enjoy every single day. If you get a job where you enjoy every minute of it you will never work a day in your life. When I was back at home in Brighton Tennessee I use to work at a place called Drummonds SACC. This was basically an afterschool camp for kids, and my job title was a caregiver. My task every day was to make sure the students got help with homework, and to help with whatever else they needed. Although we didn’t really have a lot of time during the school year to have fun, we did have fun during the summer time.
When I worked there during the summer of 2013, it was a blast; the kids had ...view middle of the document...

It was so loud that I believe the people in the next town heard them. Mr.V and I start the game; we start with the little kids first. They all looked like the animals off Looney Tunes compared to us. As we ran up and down the court you could hear the screeching noise from the kids' shoes from stopping to try and get the ball. One of the kids named Joshua was a ball hog. He felt as if he was better than anybody out on the court, so when he drove to the hole he would get blocked by one of his peers and would get so mad that he would run off the court crying. We tried to get him to pass it but he did not listen. So as he drove on the old, pealed up, gloss cover painted floor he continued to get blocked. I went to Joshua and told him that if he would pass the ball to some of his teammates, they would pass it back to him. He did not quite like that concept but he was willing to give it a try. So when he came back on the court and drove to the goal and saw that there were a lot of people there he passed it back out and then they passed it back and he scored. He went around chanting “I MADE IT MR. RUJONN, YOU WERE RIGHT.” The sound of that made me feel good because I taught this six year old kid a valuable lesson not only in basketball but also in life. He learned that doing it by yourself is not always the way to do things. Sometimes we need a little help to get us to the goal.
The lesson that I felt like I taught Joshua was that sometimes in life we need a little help to score. By that, I mean that when you are on the job and you have an important project due you cannot do it alone. As humans, we let our pride get in the way with things like this because we feel that if we do not do things alone then we have failed, but that is not the case. Also we like to receive all the credit for the projects that are put in front of us. I feel that as a worker you should want to have help by your co-workers; they were put there for a reason. Where you have your weakness at that may be their strengths. For instance, Joshua was a great shooter and he was the best person on his team, but when you put five defenders in his face and the only thing that could happen is he misses because he was trying to force...
