So glad you shared those 11 techniques, Fr. Ron! I guess about the only positive thing about them is that it would be difficult to do ALL of them at the same time (e.g., hard to be trying to please everyone if one is avoiding all possible responsibility, etc.). May I suggest a 12th? Here is it: 12. Expect to be recognized and thanked for carrying on a good work. When that recognition and thanks are not forthcoming, react by (a) blaming the rest of the world for being so blind and inconsiderate, or (b) accepting it as evidence that you are worthless and unlovable, no matter what you do. Either way--guaranteed miserableness.

I think I like #11 best. It is a matter of good stewardship to avoid defining oneself by external things and being possessed by possessions.

This is a clear list to help anyone's mental health and direction for a positive outlook in life.
