"Yes, challenged me.I at once accepted the challenge, but resolved before our meeting to send him a letter in which I explain my view of my conduct, and my deep regret for my horrible blunder ...for it was only a blunder, an unlucky, fatal blunder!
- Да, вызвал; я тотчас же принял вызов, но решил, еще раньше встречи, послать ему письмо, в котором излагаю мой взгляд на мой поступок и всё мое раскаяние в этой ужасной ошибке... потому что это была только ошибка - несчастная, роковая ошибка!

In a lean organization people have room to move without colliding with one another and can do their work without having to explain it all the time.
В "малонаселенной" организации всем хватает места, чтобы спокойно работать, не сталкиваясь с чужими "сферами влияния". Сотрудники могут спокойно заниматься своим делом, без необходимости постоянно объяснять, "что они там делают".
