Despair: key to Triumph?

Remember that post from a couple days ago bemoaning my lack of preparation for Optimization Analysis and futilely hoping I could sqeeze by with a C? Grades are in, and I got a B. I can hardly believe it, but I guess these last six caffiene fueled weeks of sleeplessness actually payed off much more handsomely than I would have imagined. And all I had to do was put myself in the mental state of hopeless struggle against the impossible. I guess I know something about mathematical programming and liner algebra after all, eh?
