What the lawyer hopefully learned.

I am so very sorry this lawyer went through the trauma of not making partner. Granted, he worked so hard for such a long time. However, it seemed like he did not stop to examine what his bosses wanted from him. Were his goals aligned with the mission of his law firm? Did he behave in ways that might have offended a senior partner? I am the daughter of a lawyer, and I grew up hearing these questions around the dinner table. I WISH I had gone to law school, but my father's success intimidated me!

very true

This outstanding video provides a beautiful reason that rings true about our recital of Vidui on Yom Kippur. Has-hem does care about every nuance of our actions, and our recital of vidui ten times takes us more in depth each time into the nuance of our negative actions and causes of our negative actions.

This video was excellent! Perhaps the lesson this associate learned was that one should work smarter as opposed to working harder. Was he treated shabbily by the senior partners? Of course he was. However, if he learned something from this traumatic experience then it was not wasted. Sometimes we operate according to what we THINK our bosses, spouses, etc. want without checking to see if our perceptions are accurate. Yes, in the workplace we always need to see if what we are doing is in alignment with what our boss wants us to be doing.
