WILL U GIVE MORE THAN 100% ????


At some point in our life, we have all heard the phrase "I will put in more than 100% effort". Now many a time, it is just a phrase signifying the intention of the bearer of those words to put in superhuman effort into whatever he/she is doing.

Whilst giving a talk to some kids the other day on their career choices, I decided to throw the question at them as to what constitutes more than 100% or even a flat 100% for that matter. I was expecting the phrase to crop up at some point during my chit chat with them and true enuff, one of the kids claimed that he will put in more than 100% for this years A levels. I paused him there and asked him what does he mean by that. I knew that I may not have been fair to him...as he tried to waffle his way thru my question...

Poor kid...any way coming back to this again..of course i helped him out with something which I had read and kept on my desk when i was in school

What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder 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%? What makes up 100% in life.

IT IS ALL MATHEMATICS REALLY

We are looking at a strictly mathematical point of view

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

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.


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%
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%


AND, 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 conclude with mathematical certainty that, while Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

FOr avoidance of doubt tho...i don't subscribe to kissing ASS...hardwork, knowledge and attitude (the good sort) is my mantra

So what about the rest of you.....anyone goes to more than 100% ?

Well what is 100%, just a figure to measure result????....

So what is Mathematics just number to add together ????.....

So how does 100% relate to numbers added together ????.....

And so what is the product of 100% and numbers ????.....

The Conclusion are 0 to 100% or more are individual level of measurement , some think they are 100% but others view differently.

goodtry - aiyoh...my maths is very bad...obviously yours is not

naerxo - that's true...it is a manner of expounding ones willingness to try harder to achieve something...
