=========================================================
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.

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%!
