Dr. Levinson was born and raised in New York City. He earned a bachelors degree in psychology from Queens College of the City University of New York and a doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Rochester.
After completing his training, Levinson moved to Minnesota to develop and direct an innovative rural mental health program that flourished under his leadership for thirty-five years.
Levinson has devoted his career to helping people stay focused, change their habits, and follow through on their good intentions. In the early 1980's, he discovered a design flaw in the human mind that causes even highly motivated people to waste much of the time, energy, money and hope they invest in self-improvement. Levinson's discovery led him to create the MotivAider — an ingeniously simple tool that uses what's wrong with the mind to make the mind work better.
In 1998, Levinson teamed up with peak performance consultant, Peter Greider, to write Following Through: A Revolutionary New Model For Finishing Whatever You Start. Now in its third edition, this critically-acclaimed book is based on Levinson's groundbreaking discovery about the paradoxical way the mind treats good intentions.
Co-founder of Behavioral Dynamics, Inc., Levinson retired from his healthcare position in 2008 to concentrate his full-time efforts on supporting MotivAider users worldwide.
