FV and FVP Forum > Reverse FVP experience

As I said in another post, I use reverse FVP currently. This means that after completing any task (task A, say), I need to compare the next selected task with all the tasks in the list above task A and perhaps select one of these. Potentially this could be very many comparisons.

I've complained on these forums, in connection with other systems of Mark's, about the length of my lists and the burden of over-many comparisons. Nevertheless, I've bitten the bullet with rFVP. I'm finding it a novel experience, and a good one, to review the whole list repeatedly. With FVP, the upper and older parts of my list would grow cobwebs.

There are two things I do in rFVP that reduce the number of comparisons I have to make.

First, I insert urgent or otherwise pressing tasks at the top of the list (suggested by Mark at ). When I know that such items are there, I just skim rapidly from task A to the top.

Second, at the beginning of a month I do a bulk clear-out of items from the previous month but one (at the beginning of February I shall clear out tasks entered before January 1). "Clearing out" means deleting, actioning or re-entering at the end of the list.
