How Many Ways?

A brief rant about lists appearing in my Twitter feed
Today, in the space of about 30 minutes my Twitter feed offered me several well intentioned links to lists of things I should know, or should be doing.
Here are a few examples.
  • 10 Simple Ways to Motivate Yourself Every Day 
  • 4 Ways to Make Delegating a Success 
  • 10 Ways to Become a More Confident Person 
  • 11 habits of mentally strong people 
  • 5 Simple Ways To Get Closer To Your Dream Right Now
  • 5 ways to make enough side money to quit your job
On the business side of life, I am now privy to a host of guidelines that will guarantee social media success for my business in 2016.
  • 7 Ideas for Creating Great Content 
  • 10 Ways To Use #SocialMedia for Crowd Sourced Marketing 
  • 4 Ways to Optimise Holiday Marketing on #SocialMedia
  • 23 Hidden Ways to Use Twitter Advanced Search for Marketing and Sales
  • 19 Ways to Use Content Marketing to Grow Your Business
  • 5 Ways to Leverage Twitter in a Post-Twitter World

I'd love to hear about some different approaches that other people have tried and had success with.

If I get a good response I could do a list of The 10 Best Alternatives to Creating Lists...
