why you should never be good at something

When you're good at Somethinging, you'll be asked to Something all the time, because you and they know that anyone else might screw it up, which will lead you to be the Somethinger for the conceivable future due to your wilting power to refuse in the face of obligation, even if you find the Something obnoxious and dull. Oh, if only you were bad at it. But you can't be: you have standards.

With great mediocrity comes little responsibility. Remember that. Live it.
