Taylor Swift has some life hacks for you. What do they teach us about the myth of effortlessness? Does being eager become 'cooler' with age? Or, is aspiration done?

Plus, what does the future of work look like? Organisational psychologist Dr. Amantha Imber talks us through productivity, and how we should be using our time.

And, our best and worst of the week, which includes an annual snub, a new TV, and contact in a non-contact sport.
