In an effort to be more mindful of my base needs in a system (and in life), it occurred to me that in order to define those, I first needed to accept that those needs fluctuate. Namely, the support that I need depends on my current energy level, the intensity of my motivation, my mood, as well as other physical and mental contexts.

In the end I came up with the following four levels of "functioning" to help me tailor the tools and (most importantly) mindsets I apply in each situation.

1. Survival

2. Living

3. Sustainable Growth

4. Abundance
