That's a great insight!

Yes, because investing isn't their job (a.k.a. their priority), angels can get bogged down in other things. That's much less likely to happen to professional investors because... well... investing is their job.

You're also right that the same thing can also make angels move quicker. If you catch them at the right time and they're "in the mood," good things can happen.
