A Wayfair Engineer on the Power of Self-Motivation

This article is part of our series "Out of Office," where we highlight the passions and hobbies of our employees — the things that “make us tick” — that allow us to tackle challenges, solve complex problems, and make meaningful changes, together.

Meet Joe Lovell. At Wayfair he's a QA software engineer, but outside of work, fitness is his passion. You can find him at the gym, training to get stronger every day.

“Self-motivation is something that translates to everything I do in life,” said Joe. “It's me against me at the end of the day. I can push myself as hard as I want to. Anyone can tell you what to do, but it's up to you to push yourself. At Wayfair, we are challenged day in and day out to push the envelope and drive our own personal growth.  Fitness and work can present different challenges but the mindset of ‘I’m not going to quit until this is done to the best of my ability’ is something that I take a lot of pride in overall.”

Watch Joe speak to the power of self motivation and a positive mindset in our Out Of Office video series.
