number 5 - watching tv, sending emails and gossiping with your colleagues cannot and should not be regarded as tasks to avoid, you shouldn't be doing these things in worktime anyway unless it's work related. As for getting to work early, what for, no-one appreciates it, you won't get paid for it, won't get the time back and colleagues will just take advantage and nip off early when you arrive. As for estimating the time to carry out a task, the general rule is double what you estimate because you will be constantly interrupted. not the best article I have ever read, let's not forget that nursing is a 24hour job which is why we hand over to the next shift.
