"Why don't you get a digger?" differs only in degree from "Why don't you buy the materials and hire someone to build it for you?". Unclear on the concept.
To put it in the same context if i were referring to my love of gardening,that would be the same as "why don't do pay someone to grow my garden for me" but then go to the supermarket and buy the vegetables regardless.
Just so. The goal may seem valuable, but the process lasts longer, and, to some, may be the goal.
Sounds like me with a snow shovel... It's the process that I value, not getting the driveway cleared. I park the truck in a snow-drift. I keep my muscles toned by keeping a spot clear for my woman. She still has to bounce over snow where the road meets the drive. I don't value the process that much!
When I lived in a wetter climate, I built a pond with a shovel and a wheelbarrow. A human can sure move a lot of dirt in a half hour per day for a couple months. Again it was the process that I valued.
Amazing to think all that carried on there backs ox.
Joseph - you are so right,its the process i enjoy,its where each time i walk past the ever growing walls i can stand there with chest pumped pride in what a bit of hard work can achieve,something i wouldn't have if i were to pay someone to do.
