Is there a fine line between being professionally skeptical and being just plain too nit picky? I have managers who fly through things but don’t miss the big picture. They are joy to work with since they don’t hold up work and get everything done on time. Then there are those who spend way too much time on everything and it is a pain to document everything the way they desire. Not too mention they tend to be late on things and send super late emails
