Who among us has not failed from time to time to do the things we know we should do?
Clinical psychologist Steve Levinson has dedicated his career to helping people turn their good intentions into life-improving action.
In the late 1990s, Dr. Levinson co-authored a landmark book, Following Through: A Revolutionary New Model for Finishing Whatever You Start — the book that brought Steve and me together. In it, Steve explains why we humans often do such a lousy job of following through, and he introduces readers to bold new ideas about what it actually takes to follow through in light of how the mind really does work instead of how we only think it should work.
For many years, Steve and I have tossed around the idea of working on a website that could help people gain the power to follow through. I’m pleased to announce that that project has come to fruition. In other words, we finally followed through on the plan.
The new Web site, followingthrough.org, is a WordPress- and MemberPress-based membership site that offers both free and paid lifetime memberships/enrollments: the Follow Through Introductory Program and the Follow Through Master Program, respectively.
The site currently offers three courses:
- Following Through: A New Perspective
The course consists of 15 lessons that drive home the fact poor follow through is the natural consequence of the flawed human mind.
- Following Through Strategies
This course teaches seven proven strategies for improving follow through.
- Adopting a Follow Through Mindset
This course aims to help you adopt and maintain an enlightened attitude, an outlook, and a philosophy that’s designed to maximize the effectiveness of all your intentions from now on.
Introductory Program enrollees have access to the first course; Master Program Enrollees have access to all three courses.
Master Program enrollees can access and take advantage of a number of resources designed to help them succeed on their follow through journeys.
The main resource is an encrypted online Intention Management System (aka the “Vault”) that allows enrollees to privately record intentions and track progress.
