I Need a Manageable Workload

Do 9-to-5 jobs exist anymore? If so, in what industries? What type of jobs should I be looking for? I’m a proposal writer, and I moved from a Fortune 100 company to a non-profit in an effort to find more work/life balance. But I’m still have more projects than I can do on under 50 hours per week. Any advice on what I’m doing wrong?

    You have a time management problem. You are not good at saying no and you are too concerned with getting everything done perfectly.

    You’re too concerned with doing everything really well.

    Instead of changing your job change yourself. Force yourself to work 40 hour weeks. Do a less perfect job at your projects. Probably no one will notice. If they do notice and they complain then tell them they need to tell you what is their highest priority and that’s what you’ll get done.

    Here are a couple of posts that might help you:
