5 QUESTIONS EVERY BORROWER SHOULD ASK BEFORE SIGNING A MORTGAGE AGREEMENT

Whenever someone sits down with a mortgage professional to discuss their options, there are standard questions everyone generally has: How much can I borrow? What size down payment do I need? What interest rates are available?

However, there are other key points that you'll want to be sure to cover before you sign on the dotted line. Dominion Lending Centres wrote a great article about questions that every borrower should be sure to ask when determining what mortgage is right for them. Key questions covered in the article include:

  1. Can I make lump-sum or other prepayments on my mortgage without being penalized?
  2. What mortgage term is best for me?
  3. Is my mortgage portable?
  4. What amortization will work best for me?
  5. How do I ensure my credit score enables me to qualify for the best possible rate?

DO YOU OVER-MANAGE OR UNDER-LEAD? THE ANSWER IS IN YOUR APPROACH

CRA requires tax preparers to efile client returnsThere's a vast difference between the mindset required for leadership versus that of management. In many instances, the perspective a leader takes on an issue is opposite of what a manager would take in the same scenario.

Managers are often tasked with handling and delegating the everyday tasks of business while leaders aim to inspire people in their company to go the extra mile and give their very best effort.

Are the managers in your company stuck in a manage-only mindset? A shift in their approach with staff can transform a company's culture - and its bottom line.

Here are a few of the differences between management and leadership mindsets:

MANAGERS LEADERS
Catch people doing things wrong Catch people doing things right
Provide instructions Provide vision
Focus on the short term Focus on the future
Control others Control themselves
Talk Listen
Make decisions Influence decisions

WHAT SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DO WITH THE FIRST HOUR OF THEIR WORK DAY

With the pace of business - and life - at an all-time high, it may seem like you never have enough time to fit in all the things you need to get done. This puts the focus on working smarter, not harder, to make the most of the time you have available.

Fast Company published an article based on the answers it received to the question of what successful people do with the first hour of their day. Some of the points the article discusses may seem contrary to what most people think they should be doing at the beginning of their work day, but they delve into the heart of what may be dragging down your productivity and motivation.

The article discusses a number of ideas for setting yourself up for success, including these main points:

  1. Don't check email for the first hour
  2. Gain awareness, be grateful
  3. Do the big, shoulder-sagging stuff first
  4. Choose your frog (the most intimidating item on your list)
  5. Ask yourself if you're doing what you want to do
