Are you a workaholic? What is the ideal workplace for you? Do you prefer a well planned and organized desk space or an untidy and messy desk?
When it comes to workstations, both psychologists and designers agree that the personal workspace reflects and influences personality and other key factors such as productivity and wellbeing. In effect, your workstation is a window into your soul!
WordPress developers have their workflows and development styles. The workspaces of the developers are thus uniquely organized to reflect these workflows and quirks. Today, I am going to share the pictures of the workstations of several WordPress influencers. I hope that WordPress newbies will be motivated to arrange their workstations to reflect the workflows of the influencer they follow.
