If It Is Not on the Calendar, It Ain’t Happening! – Episode 118

If It Is Not on the Calendar, It Ain’t Happening! – Episode 118

Embrace your calendar as more than just a scheduling tool! In this episode, May emphasizes that living life on autopilot leads to missed opportunities and a lack of fulfillment. She advocates for intentional scheduling, which involves deliberately setting goals and the technique of creating milestones for each goal on the calendar. This practice creates opportunities to regularly evaluate progress, audit actions, and make necessary adjustments to stay on track.


May explains that this kind of structured approach provides a framework for not only setting goals but also for continuously assessing how well you’re moving toward them. It allows for moments of reflection, where you can course-correct or amplify efforts to accelerate positive outcomes. This level of accountability ensures that you’re actively engaged in your journey towards your goals.


Another crucial aspect that May discusses is understanding the ‘why’ behind your goals. Knowing the deeper reasons for pursuing certain objectives can be a massive driving force. This, coupled with a calendar-centric approach, forms a powerful combination for goal attainment.


May’s mantra encourages listeners who are thinking about 2024 to step out of the mundane flow of life and to take control of their time and, ultimately, their success so that they can enjoy the life and business they desire next year.


In this last episode of 2023, May shares her wishes that all listeners will be intentional, be present and savor every single moment they are blessed with!



• “For me, living is really knowing what you’re doing every single minute in a day, really being present.” (3:47 | May Silvers)

• “Today I’m going to talk about not going through the motion. And if it’s not on the calendar, it doesn’t count. Why is it important to be on the calendar? The reason why we want to put it on the calendar is we have set an intention. Okay? We set an intention that something’s going to happen on that day.” (5:25 | May Silvers) 

• “You want to be already tracking yourself month after month. So if you don’t see any progress, you have time to catch what are you not doing correctly, what needs to be done, and then you can course correct. So when you are every single month closer to the date of your date of achievement you are auditing your progress and your process you are giving yourself time to course correct and this is the part that people tend to forget.” (10:37 | May Silvers) 

• “You need to do some work in regards to understanding your why. Why do you want to have this? Why do you want to have this goal? Because if you don’t define your why, the desire is not there. If you never had it, you never have the loss of not having it. So it’s easy to give up.” (16:04 | May Silvers)
