I'm thinking that my goal might be to re-arrange the portfolio to make it about half high-growth companies and half of more sedate, but solid picks.

The problem with "more sedate" ones is that they practically guarantee lower outcomes. I too have stocks in economic sectors outside high-tech which are therefore "more sedate." The reason, of course, is "diversification" but I wonder if it's worth the supposed added security.

The question to answer is "Can you live with the volatility?"
