Because people tend to keep up habits when they are simple, writing in a diary tends to become too tedious to make it a habit. Philipp Keel's new diary from Taschen Books makes the process fun and engaging. The diary is Keels response to having too much information and not enough meaning in life. It encourages you to "Say one thing to the world" and you can skip around and write what you want in any order. You fill in the date on any page you want, and choose if your day was things like: a)precious b) a nail file or c) crushed and there is room to explain why. Writing in this diary helps you find out who you are, and not in a new-agey way.
