Giving more than 100%...maybe this will help.

I do not know where this came from, but our manager shared it with us the other day in a meeting and I thought after a little editing it was worth passing on.

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint it goes like this:

What makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about these people who say they are giving more that 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?

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

If: the alphabet is represented numerically A=1 B=2, C=3 etc.  thru Z=26;

Then:

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

and

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

but

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

and

WHO YOU KNOW = 23+8+15+25+15+21+11+14+15+23 = 170%

So you can conclude with mathematical certainty that while HARD WORK and KNOWLEDGE will get you close and ATTITUDE will get you there, it's WHO YOU KNOW that will put you over the top to success.
