# How to succeed

Given today’s modern work environment, I found this email joke that a friend sent to be VERY true:

———

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 al l been to those meetings where someone  wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up  100% in life?

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
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 over  the top.
