Giving Your All

Ever wonder about those 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’s a little maths 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%

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%

So it stands to reason that hardwork and knowledge will get you close, attitude will get you there, but bullshit will put you over the top.

And look how far this will take you…

A S S K I S S I N G

1 19 19 11 9 19 19 9 14 7 = 125%

Have a nice day at work…
