What does it mean to give more than a 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 more than 100%. How about achieving 103%?
Well, here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:
If the letters of the alphabet: 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
were represented as numbers: 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 would be:
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%
however - -
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 then conclude with mathematical certainty that:
While, hard work and knowledge will get you close, and attitude will get you there, it's bullshit & ass kissing that will put you over the top.
