What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?
Do you 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%
- K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E = 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
- A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E = 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
- B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T = 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%
- 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 almost get you there.
Its the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top.
Now you know why some people are where they are!
And believe me, I know this to be true from my many years of corporate experience before retirement.
It is depressing when you realize how far Bullshit and Ass Kissing have taken some people.
