The "Making Your Own Rules" Course was an excellent reminder of the importance of establishing a personal minimums checklist and admitting to yourself on the ground that the hard decision of delaying or canceling a flight due to external constraints or buckling up and asking an instructor for some critiques on a refresher flight after some time away from the cockpit can save you from some much harder and more dangerous decisions in flight.
