My other, less commonly known secret answer to this question is that you can use your subconscious to cover what your conscious mind isn't good at.
For example, if I see a movie, sometimes there are themes in there that I intuitively feel have greater truth for me. So I watch it again. And again. And again, if necessary. I watch until I feel I'm done with it, using my intuition to guide me (which is more about subconscious intuition). I always know when I'm done with something.
People would say this is a waste of time, but such people aren't well versed with the power of the subconscious (also known as the "unconscious", which is different to unconsciousness). For example, I know there's great value in asking or writing down questions that you don't answer consciously. I used to do this for years, but now when I do it in my journal, I can feel if it's subconsciously sound or not. It either feels like it has some "meat" the subconscious can grab onto or not. Without the meatiness there, you won't get a great answer. With it, and perhaps weeks or months later, you'll get an insight about the question you asked that blows your mind.
So repetition, especially when you practice the skill and properly channel it using your own internal feedback as a guide, can be very effective for "seeing" more. Developing my subconscious ability has been extremely helpful to me. I've used it to win two Toastmaster table topics contests and to fast-track my personal development. Now, instead of taking months get my bearings with certain issues, it takes me minutes, hours, or days (depending).
