    Today, I am writing out pink slips ​

    for some things, some people,
    some situiations and some mentalities
    holding positions in my life!
    Letting them keep these positions
    Just isn't emotionally cost effective
    or inline with where I am headed!
    You can call it whatever you want...
    downsizing, rightsizing,
    offboarding, rationalizing,
    surplusing, outplacing,
    de-verticalization,
    strategic review of strategies,
    RIF - reduction in force;
    Nokia calls it: synergy-related headcount adjustment;
    Ebay's CFO calls it: simplifyn our organization;
    Hong Kong uses chao youyu, “2 have 1 squid cooked,”;
    China uses xia gang, “2 step down,”;
    Japan uses risutora, “restructuring,” or kaiko, “firing.”
    or say it like the French 'un plan social'
    How ever you want to put it-
    it all means the same thing
    "I don't know where you going
    but you have to get out of here...
    Your services or Lack there of-
    are no longer needed or wanted!"
