From the people who brought you the gaucherie about "structuring your lunch money" comes an effort to use Goldilocks to pitch the virtues of a structured settlement annuity issued by a great insurance company.
I'm not so sure that was a wise pairing. The gravamen of the use of Goldilocks was to seize (pun intended) the words "just right" to suit their purpose.
Perhaps they were not aware that in today's world Goldilocks has been described as "a home invasion committed by a malnourished and unsupervised child" [Reddit}. Is that "just right"? Well, there's a lot to consider. For example:
The Dark History of Goldilocks Project Untitled
In a 19th century version recorded by Eleanor Mure, Goldilocks is tortured and killed by bears for her transgressions. Mure wrote his version in 1831 for his cousin, Horace Broke (“Horbroke”) and it was not distributed to the general public. Is that "just right"?

The press has provided ample coverage which associates Goldilocks with criminal activity. For example:
Author, photographer and entrepreneur James Clear looked at research to point to how people succeed. According to Clear, in Atomic Habits (2018) you need to pick challenges that are just out of your reach. They can’t be too easy or too hard. They have to be just right. It was called the "Goldilocks Approach".
