more is less

be willing to mess up and lose face

and even when you lose face bc/ of a misunderstanding or a misrepresentation
just own it and go from there
don’t try and remedy it by way of an explanation
bc/ the more you try to save it the more you gonna lose it

Charlie Munger comes to mind:
“Do the best you can do. Never tell a lie. If you say you’re going to do it, get it done. Nobody cares about an excuse. Leave for the meeting early. Don’t be late; but if you are late, don’t bother giving people excuses. Just apologise. They’re due the apology, but they’re not interested in the excuse.”
