Listed below are links to weblogs that reference 100 Percent:


It is especially vexing when the effort is requested in one direction and not spread across the organization.

If I might offer a theory, Stephen, considering the propensity for nuclear fusion reactions to accelerate out of control, a la 3 Mile Island, Chernobyl, I think it might be possible to operate a nuclear reactor at greater than 100% output, given the exponential increase in risk of meltdown.

To that end, people aren't much different. Do we really ever realize 100% of our potential? I don't think so. And if we've come to view 60-70% of our potential as 100%, "giving 110%" is more like giving 66-77%.

Which smells a lot like how corporations market their marginally improved, short-term lifespan widgets these days...

"The other party doesn't care how hard you work. What they want is results -- 100 percent of the time."

I couldn't agree more with that statement!
