PERSISTING - Habit of Mind for the New Year

Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they never quit.
—Conrad Hilton

Efficacious people stick to a task until it is completed. They donʻt give up easily. They are able to analyze a problem, and they develop a system, structure, or strategy to attack it. Because they are able to sustain a problem-solving process over time, they are comfortable with ambiguous situations.
Students often give up when they donʻt immediately know the answer to a problem. They sometimes crumple their papers and throw them away, exclaiming " canʻt do this!" or "Itʻs too hard!" Sometimes they write down any answer to get the task over with as quickly as possible. They need to develop strategies to persist through these challenges, and we will continue to teach our students multiple ways to attack a difficult task.
