Costs and Benefits: To wisely persevere, you

need to pivot.
Motivation: Once you've made a decision, and
you're sure you made it for the right reason, you have to motivate
yourself. Perseverance requires that you re-motivate
yourself. Write down goals, do daily affirmations, and do
whatever else you have to do.

objectively, and practice motivating yourself. If what you are
doing doesn't work, go read up on other techniques and try
something else. That's perseverance.
