Figuring out life's more ambiguous calls involves a much more complex decision-making process that goes beyond clear right and wrong. Consciously or unconsciously, we weigh all sorts of factors-our desires, feelings, priorities, knowledge, past experience, comfort levels, the objective facts of the situation (as best we can discern them), and some kind of projection as to whether we think the situation is likely to get better, worse, or stay the same. And since many of the factors that go into those decisions are subjective or personal, our answers won't all be the same. One person might stay in a job or relationship far longer than someone else would choose to do. Some pilots might decide to land earlier, while others with more equipment, experience, knowledge of the local area-or just a higher tolerance for risk-would opt to press on.
