L a U ra J ea NN e ha MM o ND, EDITOR Laura. h editor's note Solution to this issue's Crossword. Find the puzzle on page 88. "Sandwiches." During a presentation on David Allen's Getting Things Done framework, a colleague of mine used the word "sandwiches" to illustrate a sub-par to-do list item. Think about it this way, he said: If "sandwiches" appeared on your to-do list in another month, next week or even tomorrow, would you remember its original intent? Would that be a reminder to order catering, call a friend for lunch, or stop by the deli for roast beef? It's possible that your job-search to-do list contains a lot of "sandwiches"- type reminders: jobs, C v , references, interview. But what, exactly, are the details needed to check off such vague to-dos? In this, PracticeLink Magazine's annual Job Search Issue, we spell out all the steps you need in detail — no "sandwiches" here. Start with the six questions on page 41 to save time and focus your efforts before you begin your search in earnest. In "Your job-search timeline" on page 49, learn how other physicians successfully completed their job searches for ideas on how you, too, might navigate the process. And for a high-level overview of your employment options, check out "Where physicians work" on page 59. As always in PracticeLink Magazine and at, we aim to provide physicians with the most helpful, comprehensive resources for a successful job search. We have nearly 25 years of experience helping physicians find their first or next practices, and we'd love the chance to help you, too. I think about my colleague's "sandwiches" example often (especially when I'm about to write my own sub-par to-do list item). I hope it's helpful for you, too, as you move through your job-search plan. Take one more minute to add a verb, make a plan, give it detail — and move that much closer to your goal. Keep smiling, Laura D ear P h YSI c I a N,
