100%

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

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants over 100%. How about achieving 103 %? Here is a little math that might prove helpful.

What makes life 100%?

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%.

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%

So it stands to reason that hard work and knowledge will get you close,
attitude will get you there, and Bullshit will take you over the top.

But 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 the next time someone ask you to give more than 100%, you know what is
required of you.
