    It seems redundant to me. I don't see that "under the category of" adds anything to your meaning, which means it detracts from your sentence.

    I also don't think something can be "under" a category, in any case. Something can be in a category, or fall into a category, or be categorized under a system, but not be under a category.

    Thanks Florentia52,

    what about then saying : All these ideas are
    united in my one overarching goal - improving the world..

    Is this better?

    We need a little more context. What are the ideas actually doing? Are they supporting your goal, or defining your goal, or inspiring your pursuit of your goal, or something else?
