Post Verb Tense
Does it ever make sense to employ continuous verb tense in cues?

For example, if one's aim is to RV a path toward improving performance of a particular skill, then I could imagine several linguistically equivalent phrases-- but are they equivalents from an RV perspective? (hyphens just for clarity):

[xxxx/xxxx] My piano-playing/ performance-improvement/ optimum trajectory

or

[xxxx/xxxx] My optimum piano-playing performance-improvement trajectory

vs

[xxxx/xxxx] Improving my piano-playing performance

Must targets always be treated as a 'thing'? That is, should cues always ultimately reference a noun phrase? I believe the Professor has said essentially when there is no ambiguity among the content, we should lean on the side of elegance, but I agree with Jefferson about concision: "The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do."

So, is there any delta in success rate/accuracy with using continuous verb tense for targets which are inherently a process? Is this a problem that necessitates the use of 'trajectory' et al to begin with?

cbuttter,

It seems that you want to know the best way of improving your piano performances on a regular basis.

I've read on these pages that you can read your cue backwards to see if it makes sense to you. After you create the perfect cue, you say it backwards, bringing you from the precise back to the general. I really can't answer your question about verbs.

How about this:

[xxxx / xxxx] cbutter's piano performance(s) / improvement / optimum trajectory

I don't know if you perform a lot, so I made the cue contain 'performances' instead of one 'performance'. But if you read this cue backwards, it would basically mean 'the best way for improvement in/when cbutter performs at the piano'

I know all artists aim for perfection when they are going about their art. Here's another cue:

[xxxx / xxxx] cbutter's piano performance(s) / perfection / optimum trajectory

If I were to turn RV onto itself to better my rv skills, would remote remote viewing be hyphenated? Or just RV skill?

No: 'remote viewing' (vs. "remote-viewing") is a neologism; RV project prosecution will ergo lead to dead end-cum-crash and burn results. Get it right.
