### What giving 100% really means

Posted by: Casey Crow

Can you believe it's Feburary already? I can't seem to get caught up from December! And, now that I'm swamped with edits for DANCE WITH A MILLIONAIRE coming out in March, I have to admit my blog day jumped off my calendar at the last minute and slapped me in the face.

So I got this other email this week. My cousin, Lisa, send them out A LOT :), but this one is too good not to share -- and yeah, I promise I'll come up with something fabulous and orginal for next post -- Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama anyone? -- but for now check this out.

Two math teachers with a combined total of 70 yrs. experience asked What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions: If: 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 Is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

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

And 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 = 100%

And, 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 +19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that 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. Now you know why some people are where they are!

Clever, fun and a good brain teaser, Casey!! Thanks for sharing.

This is awesome! I need more attitude and ass kissing, I guess. Better work on that, huh?
