Play darts. It is a game that has a really tight feedback loop, lots of repetition, and is intricate i.e. how you hold/release/throw/put force into the dart, how you aim at the board, how you place your feet, how you stand (back straight vs slouched), whether you lean forward or back, whether you move the rest of your body as you throw, what stage of breathing you are at when you throw the dart, etc. It leaves no room to think about software :)
Wanted to do psychology, one day someone asked me "soo.. <.< psychology huh... what are you gonna do with that... I was so sure I knew what I wanted to do, and that moment I don't why I just felt lost. I was in the library after that break and my girlfriend at the time, was like, you should take college more seriously, I was like "aight fine". Looked up high paying jobs, found that computer oriented jobs seemed to be up there, I said "hey I like computers", so I signed up for it just like that... I spent the summer before my first semester diving into it, every day got more and more exciting, I saw a whole new world and it was made of code. Never turned back since, except those last 3 years where I took a break, found passion for life and explore my creative perspectives. Some source code manipulation you know. Now with long hair and beard, the coding world welcomes me 2.0
