This comes from two math teachers with a combined total of 70 years experience. It has indisputable mathematical logic. It also made me laugh.
This is strictly mathematical viewpoint…it goes like this:
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 give over 100%? Who is achieving 103%? and what makes up 100% in life?
Here’ a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:
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 are 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:
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
and look how far ass kissing will take you:
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%
So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that while hardwork and knowledge will get you close and attitude will get you there; its bullshit and ass-kissing that will put you over the top!
Now you know why some people are where they are!
