Intelligence is one thing, depth of insight is another, and mental
self-control is yet another.

It's obvious you have a lot of intelligence, and I sense some deep insights
in your ideas, but IMO if you want to really create something grand, you'll
need to pay more attention to sifting the wheat from the chaff in your own
creative productions, and picking a small subset of your many intuitive
ideas and working to turn them into something more concrete and
substantial.... Perhaps that's what you're already doing?
