This is so true, it's actually a weakness and strength. I would probably let myself fail before I accept help. Sometimes you need to let go and just accept the help you're being offered. (also *I'm filled with DETERMINATION)
My reasoning behind it is to take advantage of your increase in energy/focus/motivation and get as much done as quickly as possible, because when you're on a roll, you're on a roll. Moderation? What's that?
