Archive Muryō

Summary: What do you do with the Muryō Insert at the end of each month? In this lesson you’ll learn how to archive your Muryō Insert into your notebook.

Time needed: 10 minutes

Items needed:

Insert Muryō.

1.Insert your Muryō Insert so the index and mood icons are visible on the left side of your notebook. You’re going to want to wrap your Muryō Insert around a blank page or a couple of blank pages.

Glue, Tape or Staple Muryō in place.

2. With Muryō in place use your preferred method to permanently affix Muryō. Notice that you’ll always be able to reference your index, mood and tracker for all your past notes. If you turn the page over you’ll see an archive of your habits, goals and legend.

Iterating on your Legend, Goals and Habits are a major benefit of Muryō.

3.Grab a clean Muryō, if you need more you can buy them in bulk or subscribe here. With a fresh, new Muryō Insert take some time to think about what you want to carry over from the previous month and what you want to change. Iterate on your Legend, you will likely make tweaks and changes to it over time. Add new goals, and reinforce habits that still need work by adding them back, or create new ones.

Carry over your index with some tweaks and consider tracking something new.

4.Your index is meant to change if you want it to. Since you’ve archived your Muryō Insert you now have the ability to change your index without losing anything. You might use indexes for your top clients, or names of your colleagues or students. This might change overtime and so should your index. I do try to lock in my most used indexes, this way, over time you get used to exactly where you mark the page for your Journal entries, bright ideas, etc…

Consider tracking something new. You can always switch from tracking how many hours of sleep you get to how many miles you run. You can combine these data points to see how you did over time or you can hold the book open where you archived your Muryō Insert to break up the data.
