Wonderful - thanks very much for this.   It will come in very handy.

Many years ago I worked for a struggling heavy engineering company. 
Shortly after I started there, the MD gave a pep-talk to the assembled 
workers, exhorting us to "give 200%" to ensure the company's survival. 
Naturally, we all went back to our desks (or lathes, or whatever) and 
started to work twice as hard as we had ever done before.   A few years 
later, the same MD gave a similar pep-talk, only this time, he exhorted 
us all to "give 110%".   You can imagine the result - productivity 
dropped by 45%, and the company went bust within a couple of years...
