    I'd prefer to do it. I'd prefer you not to do it. How to express it in one sentence?

    Hello.

    I'd prefer to do it myself. I'd prefer you not to do it/I'd rather you didn't do it. How to express it in one sentence?

    May I say something like that:

    I'd prefer to do it myself rather than for you to do it.

    or

    I'd rather do it myself than have you do it.

    What do you think of my examples?

    Thank you.
