What is the worst symbol for an invention? It is the light bulb.
Edison did 1000 experiments to get to the light bulb. It was a long, methodical, painful process - then the "light bulb" moment.
Good invention - and good entrepreneurship - comes from the same methodical processes, not some flash of light.
Come to think of it, the light bulb actually does make a good metaphor for inventing.
