My Sensei said that one of the "basic" techniques (I think it was shomenuchi Ikkyo but I'm not 100% sure) was also called "the lifetime technique" becuase it takes a lifetime to master it.

I think part of what makes Aikido so interesting is the fact that you have to adjust to your partner. You may have a technique almost perfect with someone you practice with regularly but when you try it on someone with a slightly different body type or who takes the ukemi slightly differently, you find the technique is difficult again.
