Giving 110 Percent

November 17, 2008 at 3:54 pm 4 comments

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%?

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
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, itʼs the Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

    so,

    CITI-BANK = 40 – 28 = 12….

    so, while it doesnt pertain exactly, I thought this would be interesting as I read about citi asking for part of the gov’t bailout money.

    The mets new ballpark will be named after Citibank. The 20 year agreement is tabbed at $400 Million.

    In the 700 BILLION dollar pool this is “only” .054% of the total bailout money.

    Don’t get me wrong, marketing is an asset for businesses, and not every naming right is anywhere near Citi’s, but just think about all the financial institutions that own naming rights:

    Wachovia Center, US Bank Arena, Key Arena, Citizens Bank Park, Invesco Field, M&T Bank Stadium, Bank of America Stadium, Edward Jones Dome, (Ahem, Ford Field), Lincoln Financial Field, Bank One Ballpark, FleetCenter, HSBC Arena, PNC Park, RBC Center….

    This is not a comprehensive list, and assume each one is paying something in the 10 million/year range…Something around 150 Million a year just on these stadiums….thats not even starting on minor league rights (Fifth third field – dayton & toledo)….

    So the next time an industry wants bailout money, maybe they should re-structure the million dollar payouts for some signage at the ballpark….

    just a though…..
