Out of the ordinary things are the times that we grow the most as developers. However, a lot of times we don't do enough weird things when we write our software.
I would encourage you to try that odd idea that you have been messing with in your head that you aren't sure you can do. Ironically you will grow more as a developer from that than your day to day getting stuff done development
I am not sure why I ever really thought about this, but give a watch to what keyed me in on this thought.
