I think the ten resolution can be categorized into three words: 1. Stewardship: get organized, spend less save more, enjoy life to the fullest-time manegement. 2. Health: lose weight, stay fit and healthy, learn something new and exciting-good for brain, quit smoking. 3. Love: fall in love, help someone else achieve their dreams, spend more time with family.
