Actually everyone's expectation is different. Understanding, knowledge and strategy are also different. Yes 10 to 20 pips per day can be good enough if you can consistently make it. And when your target is 10 pips daily you may be need to increase your lot size. Hence risk comes. You have to be skilled and disciplined.
I'm an intraday/ intraweek trend trader. My ratio is 1:1.75. I've found I miss out on 1:1.5 and 2:1 I break even more than I would like. The 2 latter mess with my Psych in my trading system, so I stick with 1.75. Hopefully, this helps. Happy New Years and Cheers!
Anything should have a goal. Trading will be much easier if the goal is managed properly. It is very important to have a profit target in similar trading. If the profit target is not set properly, some uncontrolled trading takes place.

Without a proper goal, no trader can survive in this market.
