Motivation Monday: Tie Your Shoes [The Correct Way]!

It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of motivation to start your week off right.

This week’s words of motivation: Tie Your Shoes [The Correct Way]!

In this hilarious TED talk video, we see how one little detail can make all the difference in the world, especially when it comes to a life long skill that has been taught to us when we were little children: tying your shoes.

Terry Moore, founder of the Radius Foundation, is like all of us. We tie our shoes enough times in our livelihood that we do not care or worry about its appearances. But if it wasn’t for Terry’s close eye to detail towards his discomfort of “round nylon shoelaces,” then he would have never gained a lifelong lesson which would ultimately change his life [and others] for the better. Who would’ve thought that his embarrassing moment of not tying his shoes correctly [for 50 some odd years] would be broadcasted on the first ever TED talk video in the world of TED talks?

So this week, and before you walk out the door, Tie Your Shoes [The Correct Way]!

Pay close attention to details, or the little discomforts in your life, because you never know if that detail or discomfort will yield you great knowledge or rewards in the future!
