The Step Eleven Review: bringing it into focus

A nightly Step Eleven review can easily degenerate into unfocused discourse about one's day.

Here's a slightly tighter format:

What was I resentful about?
Where was my attitude wrong?
What should my attitude be?

What was I frightened of?
Where was my attitude wrong?
What should my attitude be?

Where was I selfish?
What should I have done instead?
What can I do to make it right?

Where was I dishonest?
What should I have done instead?
What can I do to make it right?

List of apologies to make:

List of things to discuss with a sponsor or spiritual advisor:

Where was I unkind or unloving?
What should I have done instead?
What can I do to make it right?

Throughout the day, was I thinking about getting or giving?
What should the focus of my thoughts be tomorrow?

List of corrective measures (attitudes and behaviour):

(If you are short of ideas for corrective measures, pick a spiritual book off your shelf, ask God to show you specific corrective measures, and make a list of ten.)
