Happy to hear - this link should enable you to duplicate the base, if you click the dropdown menu next to 'Form Examples' at the top (it might ask you to sign up to airtable first). If that doesn't work I can dm you a different link.
One of the main reasons I prefer airtable to eg. google sheets is that I find it much easier to categorise and analyse the data. A lot of the functionality is fairly intuitive, and requires a lot less formula knowledge than eg. google sheets.
For example with my time tracking data it's fairly easy to create different views that organise the records by date, by project, by duration etc.
The airtable template gallery gives lots of examples of how the bases can be structured for stuff like that.
Thinking and Communicating as Separate Processes
I recently finished a major work project and wrote a review of the project to be shared with my colleagues. The main questions I wanted to answer were a) Was this worth doing? b) How could it be done better next time.
Towards the end of writing the review I noticed that despite having written a bunch of words on these questions, I felt like I hadn't actually answered them. It felt like I was writing a review of the project, as distinct from actually reviewing the project. I started a fresh page, aiming to answer the questions, and ended up having quite different takes on these questions than when writing with the intention to communicate.
In general, I think that writing with the intention to communicate my thoughts makes the quality of my thinking worse than if I'm writing with the intention to think. The best strategy I have for dealing with this at the moment is separate out the two processes, first work out my thoughts on a given question, then edit these thoughts to communicate them to others (I find using separate documents a useful way of separating out the processes).
Sometimes the opposite feels true. For example, if I'm trying to answer a question or solve a problem and I'm struggling, writing a message to someone asking them for help solving the problem can lead to me finding a solution myself.
The best and worst experiences you had last week probably happened when you were dreaming.
tl;dr - Compared to waking life, dreams are pretty wild and emotionally intense. Example - in a dream last week all my teeth fell out which was pretty distressing, and nothing as interesting happened to me in waking life. How emotional/ extreme an experience is seems like a good proxy for how good or bad it is. So probably the best and worse experiences you've had last week were whilst you were dreaming.
Why might this be true?
Why might this not be true?
My best guess
Given it's hard to tell, I expect there's a lot of individual differences here. I might have particularly wild dreams or a particularly mundane waking life.
Does this matter?
I've recently started 'gratitude emailing' - emailing a friend with things that I'm grateful for, who emails back with things they are grateful for, and then I email back etc.
I've found it hard to create a habit of gratitude journalling in the past, but this has been pretty easy and fun. I think this is because:
My best guess is that I experience as intense emotions in dreams as in waking life. Mostly this is informed by personal experience/ introspection. I kept a dream journal for a while a long time ago, and at one point also rated how good or bad the most recent dream bit was after waking. I can't remember exactly what my scores were, but seem to remember it being consistent with dream experiences feeling pretty good or bad. (I might be something of an anomaly with my dream experiences though, I have narcolepsy and annoyingly for my housemates once every month or two I'll start screaming in my sleep).
This Sleep, Dreams and Dreaming Oxford Handbook article talks about a study of 'dream content dimensions'
I haven't looked at the original study, and AFAICT there isn't any comparison of emotions in waking life to dreams, but was interesting to me that the ratio of negative to positive emotions reported was 4:1.
