FV and FVP Forum > No List FVP

Let's say I have generated this list via No List FVP:

1) buy books online
2) check stock market
3) clean kitchen
4) fix coffee
5) clear email

Now I ask with regards to task #5 whether I want to do anything before doing it.

Answer: "Yes, I want to check stock market before I clear email."

Now I have this list

1) buy books online
2) check stock market
3) clean kitchen
4) fix coffee
5) clear email
6) check stock market

Let's say I just work the list until I arrive at this:

1) buy books online
2) check stock market

Now the question becomes: "Do I want to do anything before I check stock market?" But I already checked the markets!

What now?

Another problem is that sometimes I come across a task which is no longer relevant because I either decided to not to do it at all or I already solved the problem via another preceding task. How do I best proceed?

Just cross it off.

Yes, just cross it off. Mark wrote somewhere that if at any time a task (or the whole list) starts to feel stale or irrelevant, you can just delete it.

Christopher:

1) buy books online
2) check stock market
3) clean kitchen
4) fix coffee
5) clear email
6) check stock market

If you find that you need to change the order, that's fine. All you have to do is cross off number 2.

As Paul and Seraphim have said, just cross it off.
