People pay good money to therapists and life coaches for exactly this purpose.
In 2 million years, human brain has nearly trippled in mass, gaining new structures... mainly the prefrontal cortex which most importantly acts as an experience simulator... have experiences in our head before we try them out in real life. No other animal can do this quite like we can.
Impact bias is the tendency for this simulator to work badly - things actually have far less impact, less intensity, & much less duration than we expect them to have.
Whenever we attempt to do something and fail, we end up doing something else.
Instead of asking why we failed to do what we intended, the creative accident asks 'what have we done?' This produces a creative insight of the highest order.
