The past few weeks have been filled with cheer as the Warriors take on the Cavaliers and the Sharks heat it up on the ice rink. I wonder who will win tonight’s game… our bet is on the Warriors. But, before we start placing bets, let’s take a minute to take a quick look back on this week’s trending topics.

  • Get your paper and pens out folks because I’ve got a quick and easy productivity trick for you. Quartz shared the Bullet Journal’s “secret” productivity hack that aims to give the old pen and paper a little more structure.
  • Recently, The Washington Post and a few other DC newsrooms shared four media relation lessons all PR folks could use. Remember to stay up to date with media lists, audience behavior impacts coverage date, be resourceful for journalists and keep content top quality!
