We've all been to those meetings where the boss says he wants more than 100 percent.

Here is how you can achieve 103 percent.

First, a little math preparation:

How does one achieve 100 percent in life?

Begin by noting the following.

IF: A = 1, B = 2, etc., Y = 25, Z = 26

H A R D W O R K = 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = only 98 percent


K N O W L E D G E = 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = only 96 percent

But interesting (and as you'd expect),
A T T I T U D E = 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100 percent

That is how you achieve 100 percent in life.


B U L L S H I T = 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103 percent

So now you know what all those high-priced consultants, upper management, and motivational speakers really mean when they want to exceed 100 percent!
