SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
Not so serious takes us into an idealistic chat about idealism that takes some delightful turns that surprised even us.  We discuss the value of the idealist/realist dilemma and what both views serve to our benefit and to our detriment.

POINT #1: “A LITTLE OF BOTH GOES A LONG WAY”
-Idealism keeps pushing us forward, helps break boundaries and explore possibilities.  Realism turns ideas into practical actions, working with what is doable NOW.

POINT #2: “TOO MUCH OF BOTH GETS YOU TO THE SAME PLACE — NOWHERE”
-Idealism can get caught up in fantasy and perfectionism.  Realism can fail to strive for anything greater or pursue taking risks.  Either way, too much of one or the other leads to a type of depression and inaction.

POINT #3: “SACRIFICE IS A MINDSET”
-The idea of sacrifice is a perception that we have decided is of value.  Sacrifice doesn’t acknowledge the joy that can occur in between, fosters entitlement and values external results over experience.  Also, if you feel like everything is such a sacrifice, what’s the point?
