: "GET WHAT YOU WANT" simply has no meaning, or value, if you will. Neither before the fact nor after.
A priori: If someone, e.g., Phillip, can't decide between two equally desirable alternatives, "Get what you want." does little to indicate
which is the *best* choice.
"Get what you want," vs "I don't know what I want"
The former is a recommendation, the latter is a statement of fact, being the implied comment in your Philip example. There's your meaning
The two statements are two different concepts. You should stop trying to make these two ideas the same thing. I'd really like that if you stopped
That's what I want. Get it?
