Yossi (not his real name), age 27, was a smart, perceptive young man with both a law degree and an MBA. He had served in an elite combat unit during his army service. He had a great job at a prominent law firm. Most of his work consisted of writing and reviewing contracts for businesses that his law firm represented.

When he was offered a major promotion to represent his law firm at top-level business meetings, an opportunity to advance his career in the law firm, he turned it down.
