Virtual Roundtable: Stay Out of the COVID-19 Alligator Pit — Energize Your Mindset hosted by The Alligator Wrangler

Austin Technology Council presented the following Virtual Roundtable on April 7, 2020.

With all the shutdowns and unknowns surrounding the COVID-19 virus swirling around us, it can really feel overwhelming, frustrating, and stressful. Or in Carrie Vanston’s nomenclature, a proverbial Alligator Pit just waiting for us to fall into.

So how do we keep our sanity and stay out of the swamp during this period of uncertainty? The trick is moving on from the fixed mind of fear and negative emotions to consciously shifting your mindset to one of empowerment, opportunity, and unexpected outcomes. In other words, a growth-oriented, energized mindset.

Carrie, The Alligator Wrangler, gave tips on how you can get out, stay out, and move on from the pit when the ‘gators come snapping. You’ll end the recording saying “See you later, alligator!”
