I have set a deadline to some extent. If, by the time I am about 25 I have not got a good band and gigs happening, I will rule out making a career from music, and focus on finding long time jobs that suit my other interests; namely art, literature, and philosophy. If that happens, I will still play guitar, and look for people to play gigs with, but I will not try to live by my music, unless something drastic happens. I have various reasons for that decision, and I understand that other people needn't stop focussing on music as a career after 25, but that is me, I am good at other things, so I would probably be more successful in those things.
