# What Makes 100%?

August 22, 2008

What Makes 100%? That’s easy. The complete version of anyhting is the 100% mark. But what does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? Is it even possible?

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. They might not come right out to say it, but you still understand th emessage clearly. How about achieving 103%? Basic math would refute the idea that giving more than 100% is impossible, right? Wrong.

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 is…
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

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

and:
A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E is…
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

thus:
B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T is…
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 is…
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 to 100%, AND Attitude will get you to 100%, its the bullshit and ass kissing that will put you over the top.

Enjoy the weekend folks.
