From the June 1971 magazine.

10th Step

Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

OF ALL THE STEPS, Step Ten appears the least dramatic and offers to alcoholics the least stimulation to their characteristically romantic imaginations. Yet an AA member who thoroughly and constantly practices Step Ten could write a tremendously helpful and inspiring article on the AA way of life. It would illuminate the value of all the other Steps. On reading the last word, you would eagerly turn back to the first sentence, ready to apply to your own life its blueprint of how to practice with profit and happiness the AA principles in all your affairs.

This, needless to say, is not such an article.
