And also from a personal development perspective, what do Elon Musk, Thomas Edison, Mark Zuckerberg, and Thomas Jefferson have in common?

Answer: Each of them is associated with an interesting desk or workspace.

A whimsical article in Quartz, written by Lois Farfel Stark, looks at how a desk can reflect the mind and personal style of the person using the desk.

“Desks have long been the home of the mind: an intimate space where you figure out what you think…there are plenty of examples of important pioneers and thought leaders who embraced unusual workspace arrangements,” the article says.

The article discusses the desks and/or workspaces of:

Elon Musk – Entrepreneur and innovative engineer

Thomas Edison – Inventor extraordinaire

Mark Zuckerberg – Facebook

Thomas Jefferson – Principal author of the Declaration of Independence and third president of the United States of America

The article has a photograph of each of their desks and also includes background on each individual.

Here’s a link to the article:
