(CNN) Money Magazine has an article by this title, in the March 2012 issue (page 72). The subtitle is, "Tired of 10-hour workdays and the office grind, but not ready to grab the gold watch? With these strategies, you can cut back at work without giving up your career."
Whether you're already retired or not yet, do you think that cutting back on your work assignment would have been feasible, where you were working? Would that have been a desireable middle ground? Can those of you still working think up an assignment that would work for you & your company, with shorter hours & less stress?
When I was working, and for a large corporation, unless someone was an individual contributor whose interface or output wasn't needed right away, cutting back on your time at work just wouldn't have been feasible. I remember a friend tried that, after she had a baby, but it was a constant struggle with her being pressed to put more time in to get things done like the full-time employees.
