Creative insights: the real payoff of research

This past week I have been writing ideas up on a topic that has been mulling over in my mind for nearly 15 years.  It addresses what I call the "elephant in the room" for geroscience advocacy.

And today, after working non-stop developing and refining the argumentation for many continuous days, I finally had that "eureka!" moment when many different lines of research and argumentation all came together.  These rare moments of creative insight are what make the sleepless nights, hair-pulling frustrations and endless chasing of references and reading, writing and revising worth it!



PS:  I wrote this post to remind myself of this point the next time I am struggling to bring my ideas together.
