One we see a lot...
"Facing into".

"We're going to have to face into the challenge of getting all the work done despite the fact that we've got rid of half of the people to do it."

One we tried to get into common use in our company but oddly didn't quite take off was "bite the pillow".

"I think we should just bite the pillow on that"

Genius :-D
Were you actually using it in the context of allowing yourselves to be shafted by a client for the common good or further work?

"If we bite the pillow on this one we can use it to leverage getting properly in to bed with this client"

generally we were using it to refer to anything unpleasant that we just had to get on with and finish to make it go away :)
