This is one of the practices I engaged in years ago, at the suggestion of a man of whom I have great respect.
I’ve never been able to complete all this list entails in a single day.
The part where it says- I will do a good turn and not be found out and if I get found out it will not count, is one of my favorite things. I was told the reasons why are:
- You’ve already received your reward by taking credit for your good deed.
- It then becomes an act to make yourself look good rather than a good deed.
- It is truly a selfless and thankless deed When done only to benefit someone else if your not found out .
This whole card helps you to grow in selflessness and humility and grasp the bigger picture, I would recommend it for anyone. I’m not advertising, this is not my business, and I receive no funds for anything contained in my blog. My only reward is if it helps you or someone you love.
You can purchase this card and many other pieces of great literature through your local area Intergroup just search Alcoholics Anonymous Intergroup and your cities name. It’s like a gift store with great recovery items. online at
