The Visible Unfinished Product

Making a finished product visible is a challenge for any work in progress. It might be easier with a brick-and-mortar project versus creating something entirely new. If we can attach an anchor point, others can join us on the belay ledge and watch us try to solve the next pitch as we climb upwards. If we leave our audience too far below or out of sight, our progress is anecdotal, and it is harder to sustain momentum. How might we bring our fans along on the journey? How might we offer a glimpse into what we are creating and how it will allow us to make a difference?

Making our Work Visible

A regional media outlet reported that SpaceX Starlink satellites are being reported to local officials as UFOs.  It turns out you can go to the tracking page and find out when the satellites might be visible overhead.

Our work is much more valuable when we make it visible and share with those who wish to track our journey.  How might you make your work visible to those who want to find you?  How might you make it visible to those who encounter you when they happen to glance in your direction?

Making Everyday Items Visible

Many people know the process described by Bill The Engineering Guy.  There is nothing proprietary about the knowledge he presents.  However, Bill cared enough to make it visible.  He took the time to illustrate the process in an easy to understand video.  One cannot look at an aluminum can the same way upon completion of the video.  Because of Bill’s commitment, we are more apt to return to his studio for future information.

What are you making visible that changes lives?
