Decision Time Tools, Inc. Improves Leisure Time Quality

Created for baby boomers and those considering retirement, the Leisure Time Tool® is a free on-line service available for anyone interested in a personalized search for suitable leisure activities.

Rathdrum, ID, February 17, 2009 --( You could spend 50 years in retirement. Fear and anxiety often surround the retirement process. Boredom, loss of identity, and a shrunken circle of social contacts are among the concerns expressed by those approaching retirement.
To help ease this transition, Decision Time Tools, Inc. announced today the launching of a free, online application to improve the quality of leisure time. The Leisure Time Tool® is an online psychological discovery tool designed to identify and connect you with personally appealing leisure activities.

This unique discovery tool offers a variety of ways to search a database containing more than 1200 activities. The activities are arranged under such categories as Sports & Exercise, Entertainment, and even Part-Time Work. Based on personal input from the user, the Leisure Time Tool® extracts a short list of appealing activities and relevant websites to explore. While originally created for bored retirees and those considering retirement, the Leisure Time Tool® is available for anyone trying to pinpoint suitable leisure activities. The tool is accessible, for free, at the company’s website: where the discovery of enjoyable new leisure activities is just a few clicks away.

Having been through the retirement process themselves, the company’s founders, psychologist Wes Du Charme and applied mathematician Kent McArthur, have experienced firsthand the challenge of replacing full-time work activities with enjoyable leisure activities. These two authors have joined forces to create the Leisure Time Tool® providing those recently retired or contemplating retirement a way to maximize the quality of the next phase of their lives. According to Du Charme, “It’s all about structuring your time with a few activities that bring you a great deal of enjoyment. Finding those activities doesn’t have to be a long process of trial and error. The Leisure Time Tool® provides an extremely efficient way of finding activities that are right for you.” Co-founder Kent McArthur retired from UC Berkeley/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 2000 after a career in research administration and teaching organizational behavior. He subsequently wrote a personal growth, self help book titled "How to Be Happy, Healthy, Wealthy & Wise." Du Charme spent time teaching Psychology at Rice University and working for Lockheed Martin. Both founders are currently enjoying retirement in Northern Idaho.
