Bringing forward one of my favorites as well as one of the most practical essay topics one would witness in life. This topic is such a one which has a great influence on children as well as working professionals. Sometime or the other each and every individual has to face this topic in one form or the other.
One usually faces a few common types of essays generally based on the type of work space he or she belongs to or else in school life one faces a set of common essays ranging from technology to festivities. Once in a while one has to come across such topics which actually have an implication in real life and don't simply follow a similar essay format for all individuals. These essays are impacted by what one feels in life and moreover whats there own view towards it.
Exploring the Topic
As this topic does not follow the typical essay writing format, its a good practice to try to relate the topic to ones own life and how they feel about it. It would be a significant point to identify that its the present moment which has the greatest importance in the life of the individual since neither past nor the future can improve anything but the present can. Furthermore it would also be noticed that except future, the other two do nothing more than adding tension or depression hence the best option is to focus on the present. Practically this is what the entire essay would be based on.
Its always a good practice to add an example, so if the writer feels that they can relate the topic to some incident which they have witnessed in their life or maybe heard of, it can be happily added as this would definitely add some brownie points. Another thing that many people do is adding one quote either at the beginning or as a concluding point, either way its a good thing to do and hence its encouraged for this essay as well. The benefit here is that quotes related to this topic are very common, therefore having one handy won't be a tough thing to do.
Sample Essay Points
'Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is Mystery and Today is a Gift thus its called Present'
This is possibly a saying which almost each and every one of us has come across at least once. The words may have been different but the expression remains constant. It provides us with a clear cut description that all we have in hand is present and that is the very thing which needs our utmost attention, neither the past nor the present can spark a revolution in one's life but only the present can.
Happiness and success comes to those who understand and embed in themselves the fundamental truth of life which says that its every single moment that matters the most because finally its such moments that add up to form the entire life of a person. Keeping this concept in ind one needs to focus on what they have in hand and that is today. To make the most of it the individual needs to learn from the past, apply that in the present to strengthen the future but this does not mean that mean that time should be wasted lamenting over the past or planning the future. Time is such a factor which once gone is gone forever thus the more time spent thinking about anything other than the present is nothing other than the wastage of valuable time which otherwise can be used to strengthen the future by focusing on the present.
Today is actually that tomorrow, regarding which one worried yesterday. This is what is the usual scenario, the present is wasted worrying about future regarding which one has no clue that what is about to come. The earlier one gets to implement this reality in his or her life the better it is since then they are actually walking on the path of betterment and the truth is that a better individual is the key to a better society.
This is only a brief idea based on which one can write their essay. One could elaborate eon the above mentioned points or they could frame their own points as per choice. Adding a word of caution, its nice to have a long essay but the points should differ from each other else it might look like an endless loop repeating the same sentences over and over again with a mild change in the sentence formation.
