Starting Monday, I’ll be embarking on a major lifestyle change. I am moving to a different time slot. From 6-9 am to 3-6 pm. The show will still be called Drive & Grind. And I am to be reunited with my ex-partner Rye of Sun Valley Crew. I’m excited about this change. And at the same time, jittery. I’ve been doing sign-on since January 2004. My body is used to waking up at 4:30 AM, so much so that when I’m on vacation, I still wake up before the sun rises. My rakets (voicings and recordings) are all set at 10AM onwards. Now I have to change everything – from my body clock to my daily sched and routine. I even have to buy my own parking space now. Worse, I have to tackle metro manila’s tough, headachy traffic! Aaargh!
But I am willing to embrace these changes. If only for the good of the station. I don’t mean to sound like a martyr. But I believe I can adjust. I don’t want to be trapped in my own comfort zone. I can make this happen. And I know it will. Hehehe… The power of positive thinking.
I’ve been starting on a new book. 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene. Very, very interesting read. Some of the laws are quite cruel though. It’s like a politician’s guidebook. How to be cunning, conniving, and deviously rise up to power. I like it. And I think with the way our company is built, this book will teach me the right approach. No more compassion. That’s why I decided to drop The Last Temptation of Christ. I decide to fight fire with fire.
Back to my schedule… Until Monday, I’m boarding with Robi and our new jock, Don (from MTV). Training them for the meantime, giving them room to explore their personalities and get the hang of it. They’ll be handling sign-on starting next week. And Sir Joe is excited about it. I think he’s more excited than they are. That’s why I’m willing to give this change a chance. It’s a power line-up for Wave. And we’re crossing our fingers.
