Giving more than 100%??!! **Must Read!!! :)

  1. Ever wonder about people who say they are giving more than a 100%?

    We have all been to those meetings where someone wants over 100%. How about achieving 103%?

    Here is a little math that might prove helpful.

    What makes life 100%?
    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

    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 * 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, and bullsh*t will take you over the top.

    But look how far a**kissing will take you!!

    A * * K I S S I N G
    1 19 19 11 9 19 19 9 14 7 = 118%

    So the next time someone asks you to give more than 100%, you know what is required of you!

    Just thought I'd Share!! Too Cute!

    Very cute, Monica.

    Must say that **kissing is not my specialty. Never has been, never will be, so guess I'll have to stay in the Attitude category. :chuckle

    Nighty night!

    Hey, that's pretty cute!! No wonder it always seems like those that are kissing up have it made.....they are giving 118%!!! Sorry, I guess I won't make it to 118% for most of my life!

    Me either.
    I think I am on of the blatent non-conformists that refuse to get sucked into the "Klicks" of most things.
    Attitude is better than scoring 118% as I see it. But ya know this holds true in so many cases!

    I've heard numerous times that "they" want 110% What do you think that might be? Hmmmm....

    Audreyfay........I think "they" want us to "dropdead" before we stop and actually realize how much more valuable we are than their "110% rule".
