  • MATH
  • This comes  from 2 math teachers with a combined total of 70 yrs. experience.
    It has an indisputable  mathematical logic. 
    It also made me Laugh Out Loud. 
    This is a strictly .....  mathematical  viewpoint... and 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 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: 
    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
     
    Is  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 
    8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 =  98%
     
    And
     
    K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E  
    11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
     
    But ,
     
    A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E  
    1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
     
    And,
     
    B-U-L-L-S-H-U-T  
    2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%
     
    AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.
     
    A-S-Z-K-I-S-S-I-N-G  
    1+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. Its  the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you over the  top.
     
    Now you know why Politicians are where they are!      
     

    I’ve never seen a better explanation than this formula………….. 
    how true it is.

  • Re: MATH
  • I once had a boss who said showing up was 90%. I asked for a 1/2 day off. He said, "What have you given me?" I said, showing up was 90%, 4 hours of labor on top of 90% is 130%. What else do you want?

  • Re: MATH
  • Interesting, Dave, but experience has taught me that, even without the math.
