I've decided that if a person comes up with one original insight in a lifetime, that person is one insight up on almost everyone else.

That's why I've given myself permission to write about sandwiches and bad haircuts this month. If I can't overcome the banality of my everyday life by conjuring up thirty 100-word insights, does it mean I don't have anything worth saying? Anyway, isn't it worse and ultimately much more banal to try to be insightful, or to merely re-package someone else's insights?

(This is how I pump myself up for a month of writing.)
