# Whats better - Hard work, Knowledge or Attitude?

Here is a little something a friend sent me that is indisputable mathematical logic. Nerdish and silly but I suppose it appeals to the dark mathematical side of my soul. But the message is very true. It goes like this:

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?

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%

That's a great message but inversely this means

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

AND, look how far arse kissing will take you:

A-R-S-E-K-I-S-S-I-N-G = 1+18+19+5+11+9+19+19+9+14+7= 131%

Which, incidentally shows that its better to kiss arse in England than it is to kiss Ass in the USA: A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G = 1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7= 127%

Assuming we treat one hundred percent as our focus then we can conclude with mathematical certainty that these combinations will work: Hard work and Knowledge will get you close but Attitude will get you further.

However, it's the Bullshit and A* kissing that gets the best results.
