Today's NaBloPoMo prompt is, "Do you prefer to have things done for you, or do you prefer to do them yourself?"
I need to keep my posts very brief this week or not do them at all (which I am considering) as something important that I need to attend to has come up recently.
This NaBloPoMo challenge requires daily blogging, posting, reading of and commenting on other blog posts. It easily takes a considerable amount of time that I currently do not have. However, since I have just come home from choir tonight, I will make this quick and short.
The obvious answer to the question above, at least to me, is "depends." I would say though that generally I prefer to do things myself, that is if I know how to do it and/or have the time. Those are the two qualifiers.
In past, when I was in my teens and 20's in particular I would say that I would have preferred that people do things for me. I was either lazy and/or thought I was (too) stupid to do whatever, to learn.
I often think if I do something it may be better, cleaner, or whatever so that is sometimes the reason I prefer to do things on my own, of my own volition.
However, if it comes to anything technological related for example, I prefer someone to do it for me ideally. On the other hand, it's best that I learn by doing, watching, and learning as I go, as I learn best experientially.
So there's my answer...my final answer. Hope that suffices!
How about you? Do you prefer things done for you or you to do them yourself?
