A Well Oiled Trigger

"A Well Oiled Trigger”  is the 7th in my Tom's Vivid Views series of original copyright press releases sent from my happy home in the sunny south of Portugal


One of the very first words I was taught in French class at school was the word élève. In English it means pupil, as in 'a school pupil'. So the word was rather appropriate in that context but that is not the sole reason that I was introduced to it early on. No, the greater purpose of my learning it was to introduce me to the accents common in the French language. In this case the acute, which tops the first letter e, and the grave which tops the second e.

More so than just an introduction to the accents, it was taught as a way of remembering them. Remember the word and you remember the accents, their names and which is which. Acute comes before grave alphabetically, phonetically (the way they sound) and visually, they point in towards each other. So, remembering the word élève triggers your memory in these respects. It is planted in your mind as a trigger.

And triggers are preludes not just to memory recall but to all kinds of actions. Most golfers for instance, use a trigger movement to initiate their swing. They give no conscious thought to the swing and its various elements once in play on the course; these have been ingrained in their subconscious through constant practice. In competition they concentrate just on the trigger, then the rest follows naturally.

In my suit and tie wearing days in business I did likewise. I planned, prepared and practiced my presentations meticulously then, when the time to 'perform' arrived, I straightened my tie and said an inward “It's showtime!” as I entered the meeting. That was my trigger – straightening my tie and repeating my simple line of encouragement. With that done I made no conscious effort to recall what I had to say or do. I just relaxed and enjoyed the moment. It worked like clockwork.

A trigger movement, thought or words removes anxiety from your action and allows you to give every situation your best shot. So be sure that your preparation is thorough and complete then, when you 'pull' your chosen trigger, it will initiate a smooth 'swing' to whatever endeavour or performance you are undertaking. A well oiled trigger will serve you well.

Your input is appreciated so please comment on “A Well Oiled Trigger”



It took me some years to establish myself in business but I believe that in life only the most resolute of tryers will prevail and after several years of a bank account in a permanent state of cardiac arrest my perseverance began to pay!

I became a successful Business Consultant, Investment Adviser and award-winning Salesperson and Marketing Professional and I coined the term 'Creative Solutions' to describe my work in devising and implementing innovative approaches to situations in business, commerce and industry (some call it trouble-shooting). From my successes I grew my own group of small companies.

Today I host my 'Wake Up Leisure and Learning Breaks', personal mentoring and business guidance, in the tranquility and calm of the sunny south of Portugal and I am the author of several best-selling books in the self-help, business and successful living genres.

CONTACT ME - I'll be thrilled to hear from you!

The life of which you dream is HERE within your grasp!
