We write lots about productivity at Lifehacker. There are tons of different methods and apps to consider, from Pomodoro to Getting Things Done, and the gear that complements it. But the key to investing in productivity is to be strategic in what you pursue -- productivity isn't plug and play, not everything will work every time.
There are plenty of incentives baked into the tax code for business and individuals -- to both assist with the day-to-day and invest in new gear. While it may not always make sense to claim a deduction, doing so can be a big help if you need some new tech.

Consider the three factors below before putting your investment property on the market, to combat some of the uncertainty and stress involved in the process.
Hey guys, I have a tricky ethical question for you. I'm going over my superannuation account, and looking into investment options. My fund offers a socially responsible investment (SRI) option, and a high-growth option. Looking at the trends over the last 10 years, the SRI has kept more or less on par with a balanced investment.
