49. If you have the recipe
When you have a recipe, you know what ingredients are needed.
You know when and how much to use.
With a recipe, anyone can make delicious chocolate chip cookies or a great lasagna.
The problem when the recipe is in your head, only you can make the meal.
That's nice for the ego but bad for growing and scaling your business.
(If you love being super busy and prefer minimal staff and love every aspect of your business, you are maintaining a healthy work/life balance for your health and family. Then keep on keeping on.)
However, if you want to delegate some of the duties you hate, enjoy more time off and family/chill time.
Then it would help if you had organized and detailed recipes.
The recipes in your office are checklists, and they allow anyone to complete any task.
Of course, it's a little more clumsy and slower when a new person does it, but it gets done.
Start building your checklist inventory so your practice can propel itself without you.
Doing this is challenging for the ego but great for scaling.
