Percentages for Business People

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wondered about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We've all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%.

How about achieving 103%?

Here's a little mathematical formula to help you answer these questions:

If the alphabet:
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 % numbers:
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
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

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

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

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

Look how far ass kissing will take you:
A-S-S--K-I-S-S-I-N-G
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can then conclude with mathematical certainty that:

While Hardwork and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, Bullshit and Ass Kissing will see you reach the Top!
