: What is the origin of "If you want something done right, do it yourself" also more importantly who was the originator? please e-mail me this information.

I'll leave the answer to your question to others, since I don't have a clue - like most people, the answer would by "my father." But I should explain why you're not likely to get an email answer. Most of the volunteers who answer questions here do so anonymously, and keep their email addresses to themselves. Cuts down on spam, for one thing. Just as important, this is a public forum, and the answers are public so we can all learn.
