We all know about giving 100% effort and are frequently exhorted to give 110% effort. But do you know the maths behind it?
If alpha characters:
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 are represented as numbers:
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
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 then,
B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%
But: A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G 1+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.
Its the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you at the top of the tree. So now you know why some people are where they are!
