Can you tie your shoes?

If you are over five years old, you probably would say YES without thinking.

Now If I ask you, how many different ways can you tie your shoelaces? Would you be surprised to know that there are at least 17 Different Ways To Tie Shoelaces? and would you be even more surprised to find out that there are 2 Trillion Lacing Methods? (Note: 34 of them are shown).

Ok, so you may think that the guy who created this site has too much time on his hands, but my point is that:

Sometimes when we know how to do something really well (so much so that we can do it without thinking), we think that this is the only way that it can be done.

How many times are you guilty of thinking that because you know how to do something, then that is the only way that it can be done?

On a different but related note: changing the lacing method of a pair shoes or boots is a free way of giving them a new look and perhaps make them last longer.
