2nd Great Depression from 2008

In my own opinion, year 2009 is like the 1930 Great Depression. Both started a year before which is 2008 and 1929 respectively. Year 2009 is NOT a normal financial crisis.

Is Great Depression good or back? Like most life experience people, my understanding is that in every good comes with a bad side and in every bad comes with a good side. Hence, it really comes down to how you look at it.

One thing that I am very sure and will bet on every cents that I have is that CHANGES is the only way to overcome Great Depression and it is inevitable. We all know that CHANGES is uncomfortable. People usually are comfortable with what they are already doing especially when what they are ready doing is making them comfortable. Old habits die hard and New way takes time to develop...... but changes, which is like adaptation is the element of survival.

One of the important changes for Real Estate Agents is to start picking up IT and learn and understand how it works and most importantly, how it can help them. This is the best time to do it. But in my experience, most Real Estate Agents are still not making use of technology to help them to be more efficient and productive. That also translate to cost and time saving. My advise is, Just Start Using IT. Only by using it, you will start to learn. If not, one will never start.

Hopefully, our real estate agent industry in Singapore will become more mature like the 1st world or even the 2nd world countries where it is really a profession where licenses are needed to practice and the Institutes are more proactive in helping the agents to keep up with technology to help in their work.....

I would round up with the following video, enjoy.
