    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..
