# What It Means to Give 100%Thanks to Dawn Falk!!!

 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?From a strictly mathematical viewpoint, here is a little 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 Zis 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 is8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%and K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E is11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 95%BUTA-T-T-I-T-U-D-E is1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%andB-U-L-L-S-H-I-T is2+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 is1+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, BULLSHIT and ASS-KISSING will put you over the top...
