    It might be helpful to have a strong base in one (so, training as a hobbyist, 10 years is reasonable), but it doesn't take that level of exposure to be able to make use of what's in other arts you train in.

    We'd have to define "fully developed" for that to be an arguable statement. People with a couple of years in a new job (even mechanical/physical jobs) are typically pretty proficient. Someone who's been doing woodworking for 5 years (consistently) is probably going to be highly proficient. I've seen folks develop skill in an art in far less than 10 years.........depending how they train.

    If I recall correctly, it also was applied to athletic skills, but - like the concert pianist - referred to what it takes to be near the top of a competitive field. So, yeah, agreed (with nitpicking).
