It sounds like step #1 would be getting the paranoia under control.
Seriously though, if your system is stable and doing the job you need it to do, I wouldn't worry about it. Your system logs (especially /var/log/messages) provide insight into the overall health of your system, in that you'll often see angry complaining if/when something is going wrong.
Don't forget to plan and implement an appropriate backup scheme. Given that things can
sometimes break without notice, you should have current backups available for all data that you can't function without.
