@Rick– I almost never ask for help. The first problem is that I really believe that I can do it all. The second is like dthl said, it’s just too hard to articulate things. I always say I can have it done in the length of time it takes to explain it to someone else. Which might actually be true if I was able to focus and get it done.

And another reason for me is that I don’t want to get shot down before I get off the ground. I am so used to having people shoot holes in every idea I have that I don’t like to tell anyone what I am going to do until I already have it at least partially done.

@dithl – Step 2 is actually the one that would give me trouble. Is it better to get help? Nah, I don’t need any help. I’m fine, I can do it on my own…..Famous last words.

@dpender – That is such a good point. I have no tolerance for redundancy. And it was so hard at my last job to bite my tongue as one of the managers slowly went over something simple that required no explanation step, by step, by step….I was ready to pull my hair out by the time they were done. Took a long time for me to realize that it wasn’t because they thought I didn’t understand it. It was because they didn’t understand it themselves. To them it actually was complicated.
