Re: The Real World: How to Reconcile?

IMHO, I tend to realize the map is not the territory. Meaning, that at one time you had a mental map of your real world, something happened which you cannot deny that does not fit into that world map. Expand the map. When the map matches the territory we do fine. When the map doesn't match the territory, we try to get the territory to do what we want it to. Its easy to change the map and accept what is.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
