  166. [^0]: DSF Scale: A subjective rating of one's Day So Far. Uses
  167. "DS" prefix, so DS50 is a DSF rating of 50.
  168.  
  169. - 10: The worst possible outcome. Practically unimaginable.
  170. - 20: Doing VERY bad. Horrible. Things seem unbearable.
  171. - 30: An intensely bad day. Nothing good. Coping is near impossible.
  172. - 40: A bad day, but not terrible. Some minor good things.
  173. - 50: So-so day, a tad worse than average. Some distressing things.
  174. - 60: A good day so far, better than average. Some peace is found.
  175. - 70: A great day, feeling good overall. Easy to cope with stress.
  176. - 80: Really great day. Inside & out, extremely peaceful and happy.
  177. - 90: Amazing day. Feeling that you must express the joyful energy.
  178. - 00: Perfect day so far; unspeakable joy. Could not get better.

  180. (Scale Updated 2019-09-13)
  181.  
  182. If you want to enter DS65 or DS91 for example, always round down to
  183. the nearest DSF score.
  184.  
  185. If you want to track your DSF score throughout the day, you can
  186. prefix the DSF rating with a 24h timestamp, like:
  187.  
  188. T1805_DSNN
  189.  
  190.  
  191.  
  192. [^1]: Optional Activities
  193.  
  194. - Art journaling (open up art software or sketchbook; draw whatever
  195. comes naturally)
  196. - Voice or video journaling: Talk into a recorder app or video app
  197. and get it all out

  200.  
  201.  
  202.  
  203. [^2]: Task BATL: The Balance-first, Approachable To-do List
  204.  
  205. This is a specific system of productivity meant to build energy levels
  206. and avoid productivity exhaustion. Reference:
  207.  
  208. https://www.friendlyskies.net/intj/the-balance-first-approachable-to-do-list
  209.  
  210. If you are a beginner or have suffered from productivity exhaustion or
  211. high stress in the past, be sure to balance your list with plenty of F
  212. and V items.
  213.  
  214. Keep an eye on the approachability and enjoyment factors. If your list
  215. makes you feel like running away, set some boundaries and design your
  216. way to a more enjoyable experience.
  217.  
  218. Take care of yourself--you are not a computer. Don't work like one.

  226. [^3]: Optional Rebasing Template
  227.  
  228. ## time - DSF
  229.  
  230. - The "time" sub-heading and this list are a Rebasing template.
  231. - You can paste this template when you need a clean-slate check-in.
  232. - Replace "time" with the current time.
  233. - Replace "DSF" with your DSF score. More on that below.
  234. - You can Rebase at any time.
  235. - It can be really helpful if you have a lot going on.
  236. - It can also be helpful if it's been a while since you had a break.
  237. - Process
  238. - Clear your slate by starting a new template.
  239. - Add a new time/DSF entry and go at it.
  240. - Add some words, feelings (I love/hate my job), or a list.
  241. - The idea is to "relocate" yourself in the flow of the day.
  242. - One outcome from a list like this is a modified schedule.
  243. - Maybe a quick break for a walk.
  244. - Maybe a quick recovery from procrastination.
  245. - Maybe it's time to end the work day--too much effort.
  246. - Another outcome is tighter boundaries, and less stress.
  247. - The main outcome is: You feel re-centered and ready to engage.
  248. - Placement
  249. - I place the newest Rebasing list at the top of the Other section.
