I can fully relate to the importance of ensuring you don't let negative emotion control you when you have to make a challenging decision. I will always remember a video I watched in flight school in 1995 that the minute you are in the cockpit, emotion is not allowed. This is to ensure that the lives of your passengers are your priority.
This is the philosophy that I have used while being a commercial pilot and since I was initially diagnosed with brain cancer on August 19, 1997.
