This is the Magnetic Midas rule, I learned from a previous boss:
If you do well at something, you get to keep doing it.
This complements Peter's Principle concept of rising to one's level of incompetence. Sometimes you want to avoid the appearance of being good at something. Other times that's what you want to do.

Midas Rule isn't about who you are, it's about what you do. Now go forth and touch things!
