FORC is when I start a task with plenty of spoons, go about the task with no problems, and even complete the task, but for "spoon" reasons one of the steps in the task is dropped.
Here is an example of a FORC:
Making food, getting out all the supplies I want for that food, all seems well. Then I look at one of the ingredients and decide I don't have the spoons to use that ingredient, like for instance slicing cheese sounds too bothersome, and so I put it away but proceed to use the other ingredients and finish making and eating the meal. That is an instance of a FORC.
