: : "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?
