The Retirement/Leisure Card Sort materials can aid in the transition from formal employment to a meaningful retirement lifestyle.

48 common pastimes (from cultural events to entertaining) are listed and described on the cards, to:

  • Trace patterns of personal time allocation
  • Evaluate the payoff of present patterns
  • Determine current frequency as well as preferred activity patterns
  • Identify avenues for new growth or expanded satisfaction
  • Plan for one's retirement.

The materials are designed to be self-administered and largely self-interpretable.

The Manual provides explicit instructions for using the card sort, an overview of the concepts and issues of retiring, summary and worksheets for processing the exercises, and eight supplementary activities for dealing with aging and retirement.

The Retirement/Leisure Card Sort is a useful resource for organisational pre-retirement programs.

The cards were completely revised in 2003.
