A friend sent this to me and I thought our community might be interested/amused.

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants 
more than 100%.  Well, here's how you can achieve 103%.

First, here's a little math that might prove helpful.

Begin by noting the following.

  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

  H A R D W O R K
  8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = Only 98%

  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%!
