"Considering the consequences of your actions and deciding on the acceptable trade-offs". This should work I think.
I will try this out.
I don't know. Need help figuring that out too.
The thing that is making me uncomfortable is that these are mostly things I have taken for granted, and they just sound right to me. I have not examined them, or considered any of the alternatives seriously.
I need some way to examine the core beliefs of my life and evaluate whether they are actually sensible or just what I have grown up thinking? Just thinking about these things and trying to evaluate them is not working, since what I already know seems correct (Confirmation bias), and my mind is just going around in circles.
Here are some of the things I believe strongly, that I want to examine, and proof of one should not come from an unproven point.
