What does it mean to give MORE than 100%
Ever wondered 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% says the boss!

Here is a mathematicall formula that might help you answer these questions.

If: ABCDEFG etc

is represented by numbers as: 1234567 etc

Then:

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

and

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K =
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11=
98%


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

So, if hardwork and knowledge get you close and attitude gets you all the way there, how do you give that extra.





B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T =
2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 =
103%

and

A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G =
1+19+19+11+9+19+

Quick, somebody add up "S-I-T-T-I-N-G-A-T-H-O-M-E-W-I-T-H-A-B-E-E-R".




I may have found the secret. :D

Hi,
Give 200% by doing the task twice.

I used to have a boss who would continually ask the work force to give 110%, but as he was really obnoxious (especially to the women, who called him gropey), in real terms normally all he got was 50%.
So after a pep talk, when he thought he was getting 110%, he was really only getting 55%.

Rozy. :)

Well done oldie.
Actually I used to give it 99%, never could get it up to 100%, but, then again, I never tried.
However, after experiencing that 99% level a number of years ago, I realize that my recent
calculation is 78%. That's okay, I'm smelling the roses now..
