Set stretch goals

From Google’s Ten things we know to be true:

We set ourselves goals we know we can’t reach yet, because we know that by stretching to meet them we can get further than we expected.

(1) Cf. (i) Don’t set goals based on what you think you can achieve, (ii) Think big, and (iii) Ensuring you’re sufficiently ambitious.
(2) Thank you Avrom Gilbert for the tip.
