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.

Notes:
(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.
