What makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?
Here's a mathematical formula that might help you answer theses questions.

Thus what is represented as: (no, the numbers and letters don't line up like they should... :( )
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
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%

And:
A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

And So forth! :D

Hello, Did you hear about the Surpreme court ruling in one of our States? They said a Life term is now equal to 45 years. There are many prisoners in that state that will be release because they fill the life terms! ...And I thought life meant till you die? I guess the Judge are better at math than most of us? So if life sentense equal 45 years? What does 46 or more years means?.... extra life? .......you got 99.5% by me on this one......Aloha

Using your forumla
B-U-T-T-K-I-S-S-I-N-G
2+21+20+20+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 151%

I would figure out P-R-O-C-R-A-S-T-I-N-A-T-I-O-N, but I think we're getting into calculus there. ;)
