Then, if you really want to work with him or her, attend the course in your third year. Even if you do not take it for credit, as you will probably have satisfied most requirements by then, follow it assiduously. Come to the lectures regularly and show up on time, perhaps do some of the homework assignments; certainly, do the readings and participate in class (although you may want to let the second-year students answer questions first). Some students show up one day in a professor’s office with a completed paper, perhaps feeling that they have to demonstrate their worth and independence first.

Subtle issues may arise that you had not noticed at first, and you may develop ideas for generalizations. As it evolves, a mundane project may become worthy of your full commitment. In fact, have several projects to work on. When frustrated or disappointed with one, you can turn to another. On the other hand, do not have too many projects; if you do, you may not finish any one of them. New ideas are always more exciting to work on.

It is not your advisor’s mission to turn you into a future Nobel winner, but to help you identify your weaknesses and overcome them, discover your strengths and make the best use of them—in short, to realize your potential.
