Thank you for your thoughtful responses, everyone. It's certainly a lot to think about (yeah yeah, I know some of you advocate "think less, shoot more").

As jrtrent pointed pointed out, it is useful to consider photographs in light of their respective "categories". I take casual shots for memories sake, as everyone else does. The only disconnect comes from when in the past I thought I was taking a great shot with artistic merit (not just for memories sake), now when I look back at them and find them lacking.

As a consequence of going through this stage of learning, if it becomes an inevitable trade-off that I take less photos in the aristic/creative category, but the ones I do take is higher quality, I suppose I can live with this tradeoff.
