The feeling of accomplishment is guaranteed to lift the spirits when you complete a project using your own hands and skills. This is not only good for your soul, but your health as well.
Here are the top 3 benefits for becoming a DIYer:
1. Sense of Accomplishment: We have all been taught from an early age that failure is bad. DIYers bravely embrace the risk of failing, knowing that, almost everything is possible when you take the time to educate yourself on your project. They see any failure or error as a learning a experience that increases their skill sets for the next project.
“There is no failure, except in no longer trying. ” Elbert Hubbard
2. Saving Big Money: When you hire someone to build or complete a project for you, you will be paying them with your “after-tax” dollars. In other words, to pay a worker $100 to do your project, you have to earn as much as $200 if you’re in the 50% tax bracket. When you do it yourself, your labor is free. Even if your project requires specialized tools, the money you save, more than pays for rental of the tools you would need. Seasoned DIYers know that most things are very easy to do, once you take the time to educate yourself on how it should be done. The internet is full of Guru’s giving their knowledge away for free.
3. Broaden your Knowledge and Skills: For every new project you take on, you gain new skills and increase your experience and knowledge. The more you do, the more you know and soon projects just become easier and easier. Before you know it, you are the “Go-To” guru for friends and family on how to get things done.
