What makes 100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%.

How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:

If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then: H-A -R -D-W-O -R -K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

and K -N -O -W-L -E-D-G-E
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But , A-T -T -I -T -U -D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

And, B -U -L -L -S -H-I -T
2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.

A-S -S -K -I -S-S -I -N-G
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, its the Bullsh*t and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

Been a while since I've seen that one. Brilliant and all too true.
