I was subscribed to Jack Mcdade ( founder of Statamic ) newly newsletter and read about his personal story. There was a time that he is burnout from his work & products, so he thinks to try to switch and become a video game developer. 

After he tries to build some games and understand more about the video game industry. Suddenly he realises whatever he suffers from the burnout in the Web or CMS industry is nothing compared to those suffering in the video game industry. At least he already has established in the so-called market; it will be crazy to give up what he has now and move into the brutal video game industry.

The takeaway part is giving it a try on a different industry or something you personal dreaming of to become is encouraged. You won't know what you might learn before you get involved in it. It might give you a fresh opinion of your current situation, and all this experience helps you.

This is what Jack Mcdade suggest:

if you have an itch to scratch, find a way to scratch it. Eliminate those burning "what if" questions if you can. You never know what you might learn.

The whole video game developer experience gives him new energy to work on his product, overcome the burnout. The best part he no longer thinks about "What if I become a video game developer."
