A few months ago, I coined the saying

“If you don’t know what to play in an unsettled corner position, play 3-3.”

Or in its shortened form “If in doubt, play 3-3.”

In my experience commenting games, the 3-3 is usually a key point in the corner, and the success rate of this saying has probably been no less than 75%.

“Don’t forget the tenuki option if the move is not in your joseki”

Perhaps reformed as “don’t rush to punish”?

In my last game, I failed to apply that idea and let myself be dragged into complications (it’s a no-komi game, but I didn’t check that at the time).

When you don’t know a complicated joseki, pretend you do. Probably your opponent doesn’t know it either and will mess up.
