# Giving 100% Isn’t Enough

What makes 100%? What does it mean to give more than 100%? Do you ever wonder about the people who say they are giving more than 100%? Surely, you have been in a situation where someone wanted you to give over 100%. Can you really achieve 110%?

Here is a little mathematical exercise that could possibly help us to answer these burning 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%

but, 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, we 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…. Ruder than you.
