Use the one-third, two-third method to create stretch goals: Setting Team and Employee Goals

When setting a stretch goal, use the two-thirds, one-third method. For the gap between commit and stretch, you and your team should have a good sense for how you might close two-thirds of that gap and have no idea at all where the other one-third would come from. Why one-third? More than one-third and people give up. Less than one-third and it's too easy and doesn't generate breakthrough ideas and performance. The additional one-third becomes the "go get."
