The title intrigued me so I clicked on it. Patrick mentions seeing a book Being, Nothingness, and Fly Fishing: How One Man Gave Up Everything to Fish the Fabled Waters of the West. The author mentions a particular river that makes him want to be a better fly fisherman.
I liked this question raised by Patrick Mathieu in the blog:

What makes you want to be a better lawyer? What makes you say: “I owe this client the very best I have to offer?” When you figure that out, you will be on the road to discovering what motivates you and you will likely become a better lawyer.
