goal inflation

Does this happen to anyone else?

“I will workout/run six times this week” : Actual result = twice
“As long as I get two workouts in this week I’ll be good” : Actual result = zero

“I will complete eight items on my todo list” : Actual result = two
“I should do two things on my list” : Actual result = maybe one

Seems there’s a pattern here. What’s the better strategy – Revise faux goals upwards to get more results or go with the “do what you say at all costs” revise down plan?
