Barcelona Bound

Under the warm embrace of Spain's sun, amidst the whispering palms, I find myself captivated by Barcelona's vibrant energy. It's in this dynamic city, teeming with techno and a culture deeply rooted in health, that I feel truly alive.

Next two weeks, I'm thrilled to share that I'll be in the vibrant city of Barcelona for most of the days. It's always a pleasure to connect with Midnighters from around the globe, and this visit is no exception. If you're in the city, let's make plans to meet. Just hit reply. These moments of connection fuel the spirit of The Midnight Project, reminding us that techno knows no borders. On the weekends I'll be in Amsterdam.

New Releases and Remixes

On the horizon of Redesign Records, we're excited to announce the release of Slim Black's latest track, "Eternum." This piece is a profound journey into the depths of sound, embodying the essence of what makes techno such a transformative genre. Keep your ears tuned for my upcoming remix of this banger this summer.

Health Tip: Fixed versus Growth Mindset

Embracing a growth mindset is about seizing challenges as exhilarating opportunities for development, guiding us on a thrilling path of continuous learning and innovation. Today, I lived the essence of the 'practice what you preach' philosophy. After twelve years of being booked almost monthly as a motivational speaker by a university, I decided not to accept their bookings anymore. Initially, this engagement was a source of mutual growth and inspiration. Still, I began to feel constrained by an emerging fixed mindset within the institution, stifling the potential for innovation and my expansion. The exhilarating decision to part ways today is a testament to my commitment to growth, innovation, and exploring new horizons. My advice to you, deeply rooted in this experience, is to evaluate your professional relationships constantly. If they no longer spur your growth, boldly step into new opportunities that reflect your dedication to development and exemplify the practice what you preach mentality.

Book Suggestion

I recommend "Mindset: The New Psychology of Success" by Carol S. Dweck to deepen your understanding of these concepts. It's an insightful exploration of how our thoughts shape our lives, offering practical advice for fostering a growth mindset in every domain, including health.

As we move forward, let's embrace the power of our mindsets to sculpt our health, longevity, and overall well-being. Remember, it's not just about the years in our life, but the life in our years.

With hearts full of music and minds attuned to growth, we continue our journey together. Your engagement, enthusiasm, and stories inspire every beat and note of The Midnight Project. Don't forget to subscribe to never miss an episode, and let's make every moment, every beat, count.

Until next time, keep exploring and keep growing.
