I recently got into an argument with some "online folk" who genuinely believed that "giving 110%" was a valid statement and worthy goal.The BigYin quotes someone saying: "It is in our company's DNA to give 110%" and then goes on to explain:
They were soon smashed down with something called "reality" and maths but not before one of them pointed out that he won't recruit someone "who only gives 90-100%" because that means "they are cruising". I weep for humanity
More dreadful observations at...
- Your company is not organic, it has no DNA
- Over-unity is not possible.
Old school football managers are often heard to confess they're "as sick as a parrot" because despite the lads "giving it 110 percent", their team has just taken a severe pasting. The problem is, 110 per cent just isn't enough of an overcrank for the modern world we live in.
