Has anyone thought along these same lines, and if so, what were the results?

I have a short attention span -- or, if I may be charitably self-indulgent, I have too many interests. If I were to resign myself to working for 30+ years, I would want to completely change fields at least every ten years. It would be the only way (for me) to maintain any level of interest and to avoid turning into one of the middle-aged drones in my current line of work (software).

I'm about two years away from changing "careers" -- that's not really the right word for it, since the goal is precisely to avoid a career in the traditional sense.
