Back from Jordan

Finally back to my cosy home in Qatar after spending 10 days in Jordan.

During that time:
  • My brother got married
  • My parents moved into the new place
  • Met a lot of old friends
  • Met my wife's sister's husband who I haven't seen for over 2 years now

Eventful and tiring, but I had a great time.

Expect a lot of photos soon.

Giving 110%

This sentence has always bothered me.

By definition 100% is THE MOST you can give. The word by defition means that when someone asks define "100% of your effort" you would reply "It means the MOST you effort you can give".

If you wanted to measure your effort in points and say you ended up with 5000 as the most effort you can produce, and then in a game or underpressure you gave 5500, it does NOT mean you gave 110%, it means you mis calculated your effort and the number 5000 was infact 90.9% of your actual effort and the 5500 is the 100%.
