7. How to set appropriate, progressive career goals

In planning a move to Los Angeles, you have made a strong, undeniable commitment to your acting career and your future life.  The next step is to set attainable yet challenging acting career goals.  Look at your career through both near and far-sighted glasses.  How long should you give yourself a chance to make it in Los Angeles?  What goals should you set for 3 months? 6 months? 1 year? 2 years? 5 years?  What should you use as your litmus tests for success?  Commercials?  Co-Stars and Guest Stars?  Film roles?  If you have an agent, what does it mean when your agent talks about your callback percentage?
