The Math Of Work


Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants over 100%. How about achieving 103%? Here’s a little math that might prove helpful.

What makes life 100%?

If we assign values to each letter such as:

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
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...

Hardwork
8+1+1+ 4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

Knowledge
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

Attitude
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

And,

Bull$hit
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, but bull$hit will put you over the top.

And look how far

Asskissing
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118% gets you!

But...

8+25+16+15+3+18+9+19+25 = 138% ~ Hypocrisy takes the cake!
