The Devil is in the Details
The devil is in the details is an expression that can be applied to a variety of situation. It usually refers to agreements where there is general agreement about the overall position, but it is not a done deal until the finer points are worked out. That same expression is applicable to almost everything that is done.
Think about it.
What good is the most perfectly formed letters in a calligraphy note if just one of the words is spelled incorrectly? That one error can sort of take down the whole message. It doesn’t matter how fine the stationary the message is penned upon, or how expensive the inks that were used, or how much the calligrapher was paid to create the message.
Unfortunately, the detail focus is missing a lot. The medium rare steak that came back medium well, or the coat from the dry cleaners still has an obvious stain on the sleeve. The martini that I ordered dirty came with just one olive. I could go on and on about how the lack of detail is causing havoc more frequently. However there are still places you can go where deviling the detail is still done frequently and routinely.
