1. ## Giving 100%!!

The next time the boss tells you to give 110%...

We have all had jobs where your boss wants you to give 100% or more.

Would you like to know how people give over 100%? Here's a little math that might prove helpful.

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 are 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... and those figures are individually taken as a percentage of 100...

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, but bull........ will put you over the top. And look how far...

A S S K I S S I N G

1 19 19 11 9 19 19 9 14 7 = 118%
