for me it is less about advertising but more about research and to remembering to look on the common-sense.
another story about research and common sense:
“The Student, the Fish, and Agassiz” http://people.bethel.edu/~dhoward/resources/Agassizfish/Agassizfish.htm
I read a better version of it, in the book “The Art of Profitability”
it was like: the student comes to a professor, professor handles him a fish and says, tell me what you see. the student looks up the fish the encyclopedia and tells him a fish named “silver fin or whatever”. then the professor says look again and tell me what you see, a week later, when the fish decomposed than the student starts really look on what he sees and describe it as it is, taking the time to observe patiently and think about what he sees, like here are lungs fins etc’, then the professor says fine.

Donald Trump has some edge, he knows to delegate well.
like that people would do something even if he doesn’t ask it directly.
there was some kind of comics about delegation. and there were examples of how to delegate well. you may know you can’t force people to do things. so there was a manager that asks to do things explicitly. this caused micromanagement. another one, the good one, told there is a problem and asked for help to solve it.
