Learn about your idols.

A different type of creativity to what I usually talk to you about. But, creativity all the same.

Growing up as an Arsenal fan in the late 1990s there was no player who I admired more than Dennis Bergkamp.

Whether it was dribbling the ball past players, scoring incredible goals or pulling out match-winning bits of skill, Bergkamp had it all.

By that age I was sure I’d never be a professional footballer (I was right), but I remember remarking to myself that I hoped to be as good at whatever I do as he was at football.

I’m still trying.

But it pays to have heroes, and it’s worth reminding yourself that you can spread those who inspire you far and wide.

They don’t all have to be writers or artists, or whatever field it is that you do.

Inspiration is a rare thing to find – learn about your idols when you can. I recently ordered the most relevant book on Bergkamp to find out more about what made the legend.
