Dismissing epiphanies as soon as they happen, and feeling insecure about the whole "insight thing " has never worked before, and most likely never will again.
Bursts of creative insight are elusive when they don't happen and mysterious when they do. But light bulb moments are actually neither rare nor random.
With discipline and training they can become frequent and reliable. Optimize your creative potential by learning to solve problems with insightful solutions.
Insights are like pole vaulting on a light saber above a rabbit in a magic hat!
Great ideas come to us in flashes of insight. By practicing the right techniques, epiphanies are inevitable. How are you inspiring and benefitting from insights? Waiting to have a great idea is not a good technique.
You can't control your insightful moments directly, but you can learn to influence them. This will take you to weird places that are off your map. If you try to program people like robots, (or yourself) then insights will remain beyond your grasp.
