I'll tack on to that and say that having other interests has mellowed me out some with hockey. Being single-minded is only really useful when you're playing competitively (i.e. not rec league as an adult). You can still be focused on improving, but if you have other things to concentrate on (work, family, other hobbies, other sports, etc), then it becomes something fun to do rather than something you really identify yourself with. And that can help put less pressure on yourself.
