Most people who do things themselves think they can do it cheaper, faster, nicer, whatever. For whatever you are doing yourself, for whatever reason, do yourself a favour. Remember this, you need a level of honesty that will deliver work that is better than the work someone else can do for you.
It’s easy to see what is wrong and the issues and think you have the solutions. It is quite different to have the courage to face it and fix it. That is why when some people do things themselves, it doesn’t work. And I am not even talking about the lack of expertise. Let’s assume they have the expertise.
Most people fail when they do things themselves is because it means having to be honest with themselves that some parts were wrong previously. They also lack the courage to go through with their plans when they do it on their own. And because most people would lack the courage and give themselves excuses, they would change their plans, their timeline and even the original objectives along the way.
That’s why it doesn’t work.
