Those are good categories to make resolutions. Maybe everyone should strive to make at least one resolution in each of those categories.

Although Sagawa Yukiyoshi (aikijujutsu master) said that resolutions were for the weak minded. Because you can just start what you want to do instead of making resolutions.
