Don't Do That

The clever series of Dos Equis beer advertisements featuring "The Most Interesting Man in the World" offers many quotes that are essentially retreaded "Chuck Norris" jokes — e.g., "Both sides of his pillow are cool", "When in Rome they do as he does", "Bear hugs are what he gives bears", etc. But among the exaggeration is an excellent piece of advice:

"Find out what it is in life that you don't do well — and then don't do that thing."

Hmmm, that sounds like the economic principle of Comparative Advantage!
