tynamite's answer « Is it important to be effective or efficient in the way you do things?

Consider two people X and Y changing tires. While X places the jack at the wrong place and takes too long to change a tire, he is basically effective but not efficient. On the other hand, Y places the jack at the right place, but also ends up cleaning the tire before changing it and completes the task quicker than X, an act that is not important to do; he is efficient because Y completed the task sooner but not effective. Who among the both is more productive and why?

If you're efficient, that doesn't mean you're effective.
If you're effective, you get the job done, but not so quickly.
I would rather be effective.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
