So I was starting to get my positive delusion sorted out. At that point in my practice evolution, my delusion state extended to yours truly. I was now beginning to realise ‘yours truly’ was going to burn out fast if I didn’t create more “yours truly” clones.
At this time, I was covering everything: Practice principal; Practitioner; Finance Manager; Accounting Manager; Bookkeeping; Administration; Reception manager; Business Operations etc.
It was getting tough managing all of us and see patients. I had leave plenty at the back door if you get my meaning.
So one day I was watching the movie, AVATAR and something clicked. I realised I needed to create more of me, not so much clones, but Avatars. I needed to segregate all the different tasks and assign to different roles.
I imagined sitting around my board room table with a team of avatars who all looked like me. Each one was head of something. I then created their job descriptions and started wearing just one hat at a time.
Once this was in place I set about recruiting. I needed a team to replace all my clone-avatars so that I could focus on what I do best, lead and inspire!
So essentially I needed to know my avatars before I could actually meet them.
