« If You Missed This... | Main | Email as the Connective Tissue »


I have never understood the concept of '110% effort'. If one's fullest possible capacity is 100%, how is it possible to give more than one is fully capable of? I'm reminded of the film based on Tom Clancy's "Hunt for Red October" in which a Russian submarine captain increases reactor output to 105%. How is it possible to create five percentage points more output than the machine is capable of?
