THIS explains everything!
We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give more than 100 percent of your effort. How about achieving 103 percent? Here's a little math that might prove helpful in the future.
The English alphabet 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 can be represented as numbers where A=1 and Z=26. So you can convert any word into an equivalent sum by adding the values of the word's constituent numbers.
H A R D W O R K:
8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11 = 98% only
K N O W L E D G E:
11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5 = 96% only
A T T I T U D E:
1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100%
B U L L S * * T
2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20 = 103%
So, it stands to reason that hard work and knowledge will get you close, but attitude and bull**** will put you over the top.Click here to return to top
