tiedyetriguy wrote I can attest to the enjoyment of a 30 hour work week which creates a much greater sense of balance in my life today. Previously walking the routine treadmill of a 'normal' 40 hour work week, I feel fortunate that 1) I made the discovery that more free time was more valuable than more money, and 2) my workplace allows the flexibility to choose parttime or fulltime hours. Interesting..... Last night I was filing some mutual fund statements in my big 3 ring binder and I happened to reread my "Financial/Life Objectives" statement which I last updated in 1997 and which is in the front of the binder. One of the bullets says "be financially able to revert to a lower key/part-time job by age xx while maintaining an annual income of $YY without dipping into investments which will be allowed to continue to grow even if it's not possible to add to them regularly." I beat the "revert to a lower key piece of it by several years and fortunately I am still able to salt away a good chunk of money each month. However, I'd love to be able to figure out how to move to the part-time scenario for the last two years or so. My sense is that it is generally easier for a self-employed professional to do so, since they appear to have more control over their hours. Perhaps that's also possible for software techies. Any hints or success stories out there from those who have successfully negotiated their way from full-time to part-time jobs while working for fairly traditional organizations?jtmitch
