This is a trait that is becoming harder to master.

We live in a world of information overload and instant gratification.

Digitization, which was meant to increase our productivity, seems like a double-edged sword.

It is the enemy of our focus many a time.

Other times, we are our own enemy. We try to focus on many things within a short period of time. And the result? We achieved nothing.

I received this yesterday.

This is not the first time I received this in my real estate career. But it is the first time I received this from my existing agency, OrangeTee & Tie.

There is definitely a lot of pride and at the same time, many thoughts behind this award.

I joined OrangeTee with a long to-do list. I wanted to learn about the shophouse segment. I wanted to do Team Management. And I wanted to continue my work in residential sales.

It was my first move after a long 18 years with my previous agency.

Then came the biggest disruption of our generation - Covid 19.

Circuit Breaker forced most people to stay home. This was followed by Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3.

I can make many reasons for why I didn't make it last year. But in my heart, I know they are just excuses.

The only reason why my sales flopped last year was cos I was not focused.

I overestimated myself. I wanted to achieve a lot within a short time.

Well, as the saying goes: You never lose. You either win, or you learn.

Last year was the year l learned.

So this year, I told myself to be focused.

I hope to share my experience with whoever reading this.

And especially to my team, whom I really hope this real estate career can help achieve what you dream of. My message is: Stay focused,

As a newbie in the real estate industry, there is a lot you want to learn and to do. But stay focused on what you have set up to do for now.

We can make adjustments along the way, and expand on what you want to do. But for a start, just remain focused.

And to the experienced agents, let's remain focused on what we want to do to reach our goal and our vision.

And very soon we will see one another at the Awards Ceremony :)
