It's all in the Math......

I knew I was missing something all this time I been going about it wrong and no that is no one told me anything different so I had no clue until I did the math.


What does it mean to "give it your all"? Is that giving 100%? How do you give 100%?

And we've all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give MORE than 100%.

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

So what, after all, makes up 100% in life?

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint it goes like this:

Assigning straight numerical values, where A=1, B=2, etc. through Z=26:

Then

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


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) gives you a perfect 100%


That said,

B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T (2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20) = 103%

AND, look how far ass-kissing will take you.

A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G (1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7) = 118%


So, we can conclude with a mathematical certainty:
while Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the Bullshit and Ass-kissing that will put you over the top.

Sad but true.

Kind of old news though.

Funny thing is when we have presentations to do at uni we make ALOT of stuff up and just make sure we dress it well during, but then I guess as marketing students thats our stock and trade.
