Persistence does count for something! I have a student that makes the conscience choice to not to do any of the work everyday. I asked him why he did not want to do any work and he stated that he was just not motivated to do any of the work, he has failed the class before and this year will be no different. So instead of nagging him everyday to show me effort, I instead asked him everyday if it was a good day for him to try some work. After maybe three weeks of asking everyday if today was a good day, he finally said yes. Today was that day.
