Evening Routine

In the evening, before retiring.

(optional) Begin with relaxing your body.

Evening Retrospect
Steps
  1. Review the scenes of the day in reverse order.
    Examine the events of:
    1. the evening
    2. the afternoon
    3. the forenoon
    4. the morning
  2. Picture to yourself — as faithfully as possible — each scene and all that took place in each pictured scene.
  3. Review your moral attitude in relation to each scene:
    1. How do you judge your actions?
    2. Did you do it right; could you have done it better?
    3. Conveyed your words the meaning you intended or did your words give a false impression?
    4. In relating experiences to others, did you overstate or understate them?
  4. Regarding the wrongs you have done.
    1. Take full responsibility
    2. Think:
      I couldn’t do otherwise back then, but now I can do it better and I will do it better in future.
  5. Regarding the good you have done
    1. Approve — impersonally — of the good you have done.
    2. Determine to do still better.
