I've been using two or three pools so far. One of them always seems to need higher effort to find a block. Does that impact me personally in any way. I've seen one go 600% and it took ages to get it. Did I lose time on it? How does a 10% effort block change things then?

The effort is just an educated guess based on the total pool hashrate.

At X Hashes/s, a block should be found in Y time.

I basically ignore it, its it a guess and not factual.
