And Now For Something Different

Every once in a while someone comes along who looks at the way we do things and thinks "Hey, you know what would be an easier/better/cheaper/faster way to do this…” Typically these are the people who end up living in ocean view houses in Newport Beach, but only for the spring because the summer months are too humid and those peasant tourists really overrun the marina during busy season.

A good example of this is the guys who created You Tube. What I'm trying to say is that if you ever discover a new way to do something I hope you have a trusty financial advisor because you're about to run into a truckload of money. Unless of course your new idea is something mundane like a better shoelace knot. Or you decide to give the info away free on your website. Or, as is the case here, both.

Today’s useful link is to a website put together by Ian Fieggen and it contains a number of new and creative ways to tie your shoes. I’m sure that Ian wishes that he’d instead thought of new and creative way to share videos online, but I for one am glad that he has found some better ways to tie your shoelaces. So give some of these a try and let me know which ones you like in the comments. Me, I kind of like “Ian’s Secure Shoelace Knot,” because there’s nothing worse than having your shoe come untied in the middle of a training run, or even worse a race.

Without further ado, here’s the link: Ian’s Shoelace Site
