When I started on the path towards being a developer, I did not realize how many devs identified strongly with development being their singular passion. I met developers who would enjoy coding apps in their free time, who had few other hobbies outside (maybe) video games. I know I am not the only multi passionate developer out there, but I often feel like at work people shy away from talking about their other hobbies and interests.
I am a bit of an extreme example because I've done everything from making games to writing short stories to meditating to blogging to drawing to photography but I wonder how my fellow multi-passionate people handle the stress of keeping up with the constantly evolving word of development while also being able to explore and invest in their hobbies. Do you find ways of narrowing down your interests and just practising 1 or 2 of these hobbies? Do you look for ways to combine your hobbies with development? Do you think identify as multi-passionate but later look deeply inward and discover that the root of the problem was really indecision (I often wonder this myself)? I look forward to your responses, because I REALLY struggle with this!
