    Peter Paul
  • Author's Note


    The term 'amalgamation' pertains to a combination of two or more. This is a personal blog which is a combination of musings of my activities, thoughts, inspirations, ideas, and everything that happens around me.

  • Be inspired, have peace of mind


    As a personal blog, there are articles written not just for the sole intention of writing but are also directed to share experiences to uplift and inspire the downtrodden.

  • Love, love, love


    There's beauty in everything. Be filled with love as you listen to love songs you may want to sing along with.

  • Tragedies and Disasters


    Life isn't always about fun and happiness. Get a glimpse of me as I speak my mind about tragedies, disasters, and pains.

  • Hope


    Life won't have meaning if everyone turns blind and start to see no hope. There is always hope, just waiting to be lit. Read through articles filled with hope.

  • Movies and so much more!


    Occasionally, I'm inclined to write reviews for movies, places, restos, or just about anything. Watch out for those cutting remarks! =)

  • Journey


    Hey, life's a journey. What better way to immortalize oneself than through writing?

  • Share your thoughts!


    I would greatly appreciate it if you shared your thoughts with me. Please feel free to leave messages at the comments box below each post. Thanks!

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint, what equals 100%?

What does it mean to give more than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100% in what they do?

How about achieving 101%?

What equals 100% in life?

If A to Z is represented as

A = 1
B = 2
C = 3

Et cetera until Z = 26,

H – A – R – D – W – O – R – K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

K – N – O – W – L – E – D – G – E
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 95%


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

It doesn't end there. Look at how much farther you can go.

L – O – V – E       O – F       G – O – D
12+15+22+5      15+6+      7+15+4 = 101%

We can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while hard work and knowledge will get you close, and attitude will get you there, it's the love of God that will put you over the top.

And where do we start? We start of course with ourselves. Like everybody else, you and me, we are never perfect, no one is. So don't pretend to be, you're only fooling yourself. Admit your mistakes so then you can think of ways to make amends. Decide when it's not too late yet. The good news though is, nothing is ever too late in the eyes of God. So even if it's too late in others' eyes, you can still make things right. Begin with a change in attitude as you see right, and include a pocketful of prayers while you're at it, to get to the top 101%.
