Being productive means, you should be productive in the work you do in the organization each day. A mentor is engaged in what you are doing it will indicate that you are naturally productive at your work and you are focused on the task at your hand with full attention and concentrate to complete it. This is probably an understatement that mentors are the busiest person in the organization because a day in the life of mentor is chock-full with the business decision research and networking because there is so much to do but, in less time, to perform the task.
Establish a routine to perform all the tasks:
“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled,” said Plutarch, a Greek Middle Platonist philosopher, historian, biographer, essayist, and priest at the Temple of Apollo. Plutarch is known primarily for his Parallel Lives, a series of biographies of illustrious Greeks and Romans, and Moralia, a collection of essays and speeches.
If the mentor does not establish a time to perform the task and doesn’t stick to the daily schedule, he will not be able to accomplish anything. It’s a challenge for the average person or employee in the organization to juggle mentor personal and professional abilities. Without a routine, a mentor won’t complete any work and he will just waste his and his employee’s time. If a mentor sets and sticks to the time allotted to complete the task, he can achieve everything if he follows the schedule accordingly. The mentor should set his schedule according to his productivity if he is productive in the morning, he should set tasks related to office work and if he is productive at night then set up a routine based on being a night owl.
Exercise and meditate to remain fit:
The importance of exercise should be added to your routine-based schedule because exercise and mediation will help you to remains fit and be more productive at your work. The most successful people make exercise important and give it the first priority to be in their routine to be fit and to be productive. A mentor should do any small sports to relieve the stress and clear your mind and make you feel fresh every time. If you are not able to lift heavy weights at home or in a workout place, instead go for a morning walk and meditation at a place full of grass and beautiful flowers.
Check your staff progress every day:
As a mentor, you are extremely busy the whole day and you may be focused on the task that is on your hand and negate some important topics and tasks while focusing on a particular task. So, to avoid this mentor should prepare a daily report to manage which tasks are done and which are remaining to perform this will be in sequence and there will be a dedicated report to go through.
The mentor should avoid all the things that can distract him from his work like turn-off mobile phones, clear the desk, and close the door to concentrate on work. This is hard to do but if you want to be productive at your work then you should follow some rules and guidelines to avoid distraction from the work you are doing.
Allow breaks and rewards:
If your day goes focusing in general and in competing work, even without distractions, break down your goal or task into 15-minute intervals to feel relax. The mentor should take small breaks in between the work so as to be more protective at work.
