The Most Influential People in the admitting your wrong quotes Industry

What’s the best advice you ever received? I’m guessing it’s “admit what you don’t like.” I still think that’s a really good advice.

Our resident expert on quotes, is one of our contributors, Sean. He likes to refer to himself as a “frenetic” writer. He likes to quote, quote, quote and quote some more. He likes to quote a lot.

When he says, “Don’t say you’re sorry,” he means that when you make a mistake, you should admit it. He doesn’t mean saying sorry is something you get out of the corner of your mouth, but rather that if you make a mistake, you should admit it. And because he says this, he’s like a master at admitting his mistakes.

He also likes to say that the phrase, “Don’t say youre sorry,” is a quote of his from a book called “How To Say I’m Sorry,” but he doesn’t realize that the book is actually about how to say I’m sorry.

If anyone here has ever said anything that could be considered “wrong,” they should admit it. Saying you regret something is like getting up on your knees and saying, “I’m sorry I ate the chocolate cake.” It shows a lack of self-awareness because if you admit you’ve eaten the cake, then you’ve already admitted you’ve eaten the cake.

I agree, if you are one of those “if you have nothing to say, don’t say anything” people, then that is fine too. But when you have an off-topic post on the topic, which is in a thread about the things you’ve done wrong, and you really shouldn’t have done (say, you should have checked the spelling on your title) then you should admit it.

One guy at work is trying to figure out if every single blog post on his blog is an attempt to get people to link to it. He says it depends on what youre talking about, though. He says it depends on how you feel about it, but he doesn’t feel that way.

I disagree, this guy is a very nice and smart dude. But he is really good at saying exactly the wrong thing, and not taking responsibility for it. I think it is really bad to admit that you made a mistake without acknowledging it. That is not to say you shouldnt say it. But it shouldnt be a part of your title.

He’s a great guy, but I like the idea of letting a friend go through all the different forms of an interview, and then just let him go through all the different forms of a job interview, etc.

I was in one of these jobs where I had a lot of experience interviewing candidates, and the one guy I interviewed was the worst interview I have ever participated in. He kept saying “I am a little bit weird” and “I am a little bit weird” and “I am a little bit weird” and “I am a little bit weird” until I finally told him to take a deep breath and stop.
