This reminds me something I read from Robert Fulghum:
"There are two journeys one must make to have balance-OUT there and
IN here. One depends upon the other. Every exit is an entrance. The
door swings both ways. The only way out is always in. To move on in
the world as it is, one must turn to resources within."

Sometimes I belive company executives feel as though they are burdenedwith
all decisions regarding layoff or company growth. Why can't
they turn within their company for answers? Seek out ideas. Lay out
the situation as clearly as possible and possible strategies; of which one
is layoff. They may be suprised by the response.

For now...
