Totally. Breaking things for fun is a blast. I work with folks who are on their path to their first dev jobs though, and meandering isn't really conducive to their goals, so I'm sharing all the hacks I had to create/learn (esp having a non-verbal learning disability... learning, let alone learning to code, was a real bitch) to help them avoid the pitfalls!

 

I can definitely see how discipline would be crucial! I have ADD and I really struggle to learn anything that doesn't immediately seem fun/interesting to me. Sometimes I can use it to my advantage and specialize in things most people don't care too much for, and sometimes I get to be very grateful that I have generally dealt with kind and patient supervisors when my time management skills fly right out the window.
