Working toward short-term goals, for what it's worth, is one of the foundations of my day to day life. Though this is not a philosophical tenet, working to build, to grow, to progress, and to succeed provides a good part of the impetus I need to anchor me in a sense of purpose.
I found my life on my faith in God. I'm not always a very good disciple, but it is the most important thing in my life and I would be lost without it. When I drift from it I can feel life start to lose it's meaning and value, and other things such as job and family start to suffer as a result. Faith comes first, then everything else.
i guess that thats true for most people, faith is and has been a primary 'foundation' for human existence for ever hasnt it?
A good answer by judyd3! :) very laudable too.
I guess I agree that one can at last try not to make things worse, and if possible, try to leave the world a little better than we found it....
ultimately, for me, however, Love-- for people/dear ones, humans and other living things, for this planet we inhabit and share-- is probably the main/over riding consideration. My 'foundation' as it were.
I would guess that most people's foundations are based on religion. Mine, however, is more global. They are basically:
Leave the world a better place than you found it.
Your job on earth is to help others. If you cannot help them, don't hurt them (Ghandi)
Make others around you happy.
