They say the more successful you are, the happier you'll be. But when you think about it, it should actually be the other way around. The happier you are, the more successful you should be.

At least, that’s what they're saying when it comes to work.

We're not saying you have to be Mr. or Mrs. Sunshine all the time, but according to a new study, employees are 12% more productive if they're positive. In other words, happy people get the job done.

And if you're a Debbie Downer, productivity goes down 10% with a higher chance of you getting the heck out of dodge.

If you're not pleased with your job you can always work on Mars.

Yup, you read that right.

NASA wants you to consider job opportunities on the Red Planet. The United States Space Agency released retro recruitment posters advertising positions that will be available in the future on Mars.

It's going to be awhile before you can send your resume into space, since NASA doesn't plan on colonizing Mars until 2030.  But if you're not happy at your current job, you may want to consider another planet.
