Posted on: March 30th, 2007 Getting Real

Here is the best articulation I’ve seen of what it means to "get real:"

"… a subjective term, meaning different things to different people. It is used … to mean to be authentic; to be truthful; to say what you mean; to be congruent with what you value; to penetrate past lazy thinking, facades, games, defenses, fears, illusions; to get a core understanding, to get to the heart of the matter; to open your belief systems to examination; to increase your awareness of what is really going on, and your choices of how to respond." Mahan Kalsa, Let’s Get Real or Let’s Not Play (Salt Lake City: White Water Press, 1999), p. 12.
