Do you have a philosophy by which you operate your life? That is a big question, and the answer could be numerous. But here is a thought. Several years ago, I asked a friend how he was doing. His response: “Just putting one foot in front of the other.” That is a simple statement, almost what you might hear from a child. But as I thought about it, my friend’s comment was profound. What is more fundamental than making one step forward each moment to survive and succeed in life? Millions of words, statements, and books can be written, but my friend had it down to the basics.
