Donkey in the well
One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided the animal was old, that the well needed to be covered anyway and that it just wasn't worth retrieving the donkey. So he invited all his neighbours to come over and help him.
They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quietened down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off!
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up.

accuracy, precision--Accuracy is the agreement between the true value and the result obtained by measurement. Accurate means "errorless." Precision is the agreement among repeated measurements of the same quantity. Precise means "clearly delineated, definite."[A sentence can be accurate but not precise. Our measurements show that the tank contains about 8 gallons (accurate). The tank contains 8.3 gallons (accurate and precise). ]

affect, effect--To affect is to influence or change. To effect is to bring about. An effect is a result or an influence.[Ingesting alcohol affects her driving competence. Margaritas effect an undesirable change in his personality; he shouts and tells you that they have no effect on his speech. ] NOTE: "Impact" is frequently and inappropriately used as a verb; "affect" is a better choice. Rather than saying "These cuts impact our project," say "These cuts affect our project."
