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.

The foundation of my life is being the best person I can be. I try to live my life according to a higher moral code. I try to help as many people as much as I can. I guess that's why I am a teacher! I try to treat people the way I'd like them to treat me.

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.
