August <I>CMM</I>: Surviving The Changing Custodial World

August 26, 2009
The August issue of Cleaning & Maintenance Management® magazine is now available online, including Carol Kobylanski''s "Surviving The Changing Custodial World" article.
Kobylanski states that today''s world of "do more with less" and/or "find creative ways to make it work because you can''t have additional resources" results in a work situation that is becoming a condition many are currently all too familiar with.
She notes that when you take some time for yourself, you''re likely to come back to your work more refreshed and more productive.
Kobylanski adds that if your mind always thinks about work, keep a notebook with you at all times to record an idea when it comes to you; another approach: Call your office phone and leave the thought on voicemail.
According to Kobylanski, do more of what works; write down your thoughts to keep your memory free; focus on what is important: Family, friends, health, humor and hobbies; and all those other parts of who you are.
Carol Kobylanski, REH, began her custodial experiences with a summer college job over 30 years ago. She currently oversees custodial operations for all campus residential buildings, the student center, athletic facilities and many portions of the academic/administrative custodial campus'' needs at The College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio.
