Unfortunately, I can not again find the reference but here is what I remember:

"The average person (listener) will more readily notice if a note is flat than if it is sharp. "

So, better to aim for the "high" side of the notes, particularly if it is a dreaded pinky stretch.

Have you ever heard of "multi-tasking" ?

That's only about one year if you give up sleep or 6 mos. if you practice twice as much as usual.
