    If you give 50% of inspiration and 60% of perspiration then you are giving a total 110% into the project.

    I had a manager like Rita. She had no appreciation for engineering standards.

    100% is the limit before you break something. I like to compare it to paper clips. If you only put in 3-4 pieces of paper they last forever. If you put in 30-40, they will hold, but are permanently deformed and won’t properly hold 3-4 afterwards.

    If you work more than the standard 45 hours a week (Engineers) then you go over the normal 100% of time.Or if you are a Smart engineer, you work 40 Hours and put 65 on the Spreadsheet. Which of course is all the manager goes by anyway.

    Rita’s double negative alters her answer to Jays question. It should be Yes – with that kind of … or No I do not understand, that kind of ….
