Absolutely. I wonder sometimes how many people have given up on something important to them only because they set a goal that was too high.
I’ve found that my expectations of myself are almost always too high (thanks mom!), so when it comes to goal-setting, I try to set myself goals that feel TOO easy.
A “too easy” goal has a much better chance of actually being a reasonable, achievable goal, and if I end up doing better than said goal, well, I get to feel like an overachiever.
