In this article, James Neiman Sensei discusses these questions and offers an alternate set of questions. Here are some of them.
“Do you take firm action to improve yourself either in class or outside of class every day?”
“Do you take full advantage of what your teacher and school have to offer?”
“If you have weak muscles, do you strengthen them?”
“If you are quickly running out of breath, do you work on your cardiovascular fitness?”
“Have you trained the basic techniques 10,000 times each? How about 100,000 times?”
