Well, here's how you can achieve 103%. First, here's a little math that might prove helpful. Begin by noting the following. IF: A = 1 B = 2 C = 3 D = 4 E = 5 F = 6 G = 7 H = 8 I = 9 J = 10 K = 11 : : : X = 24 Y = 25 Z = 26 Then: H A R D W O R K 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = Only 98% Similarly, K N O W L E D G E 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = Only 96% But interesting (and as you'd expect), A T T I T U D E 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100% ... This is how you achieve 100% in LIFE. But even more important to note is B U L L S H I T 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103% Maybe this is what all those high-priced consultant and motivational speakers really mean when they want to exceed 100%! ``` Copyright 1996-2020 trademark and the "Fool" logo is a trademark of The Motley Fool, Inc.
