I don't think this is a difficult decision. The 10/1 is the choice. You should have the mortgage paid off in 10 years. (Or you'll be so close that the interest rate won't matter much.)
Start making money and keep expenses low.

We are at 4.25% fixed on the mortgage rate. I do look at it like a guaranteed return, which is a rare thing.
