Giving More than 100% at Work...





At some point in our life, we have all been to those meetings where someone wants over 100%...and some people commits to delivering more than 100%.

Here's a little math to help you in achieving a little more of 100% that may prove helpful in the future!


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

equals:
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 % Only

K N O W L E D G E

11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5 = 96 % Only


But:


A T T I T U D E

1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100 %

However:


B U L L * * * T
2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20 = 103%

Ha! So, puh...lease....don't promise me more than 100%, because more likely, you are just giving me the 3% extra...and if that is something that gets you to the top...well I certainly don't need it...because bull***t may get you to the top, but it doesn't keep you there too long - let us learn from the presentation below! :p

I stopped giving 100% at my job a long time ago. Now I just give whatever I got for that day, which is almost always enough to get the job done.

Great post, Beautiful Butterfly!
BTW, I hate Bullshitters because of the sociopathic damage they do to other innocents they see as "in their way!"
