Here are some useful acronyms I've used on my CBT journey:
BAD: Beliefs (and assumptions), Automatic negative thoughts, Distortions,
DAFT: Downsides and benefits (same as "pros and cons"), Automatic positive thoughts, Feelings, Thoughts.
Feelings, Actions, Thoughts.
Directives, imperatives, do, don't, urgent, must (and mustn't), should (and shouldn't).
