Rather than take the "horses for courses" approach - have you looked at your photos in the past and done a high-level analysis? If you look at the last couple of hundred photos and found that 85% of them were at 24mm and you used for the most part a 24-70mm, that might tell you that you like wider angles, and it may be more useful to your creativity to use a 16-35 that gives you the 24mm FL plus some options on either end of the range. The point being here - sometimes it's not the appropriateness of the lens FL to the application, but rather, the choices and tastes of the photographer. You may find that following those metrics develops your vision further.
