So very true Paul.  Reaching a point where tools effectively become an extension of yourself can take time and crafting instinctively typically involves constant consistent practise.  It often only truly falls into place with adequate guidance/support from a mentor or work partner.  Hand and eye co-ordination play a massive part in this, but the ratio of 75% theory : 25% practical skills truly comes into play as reading and study fall into place and convert to projects and tasks.  Knowledge becomes practice and practice becomes knowledge in the never ending cycle of challenges and fulfillment.
