    Default pursue your passions

    Hello,

    The I-TeckŪ XS makes it easier than ever to pursue your passions and stay connected to the people and things you care about most

    What does "pursue your passions" mean here? Does it mean "to do what you want to do"?

    Thanks

    Default Re: pursue your passions

    I would expect a small-print note saying, "...unless your passion is any of the following..."

    I'd say it's "what you like doing". A passion used to be something you were fervently enthusiastic about, but I don't believe this is the case today. I think it's enough to like something to call it a passion now.

    Also, I don't like the expression "pursue your passions". I think the verb is wrong (although it's not the first time I see this usage), but that's my personal opinion.

    Milan.
    In a sense it does mean that, but it's a little stronger. To "pursue your passions" is to enthusiastically explore and stay involved with those things that interest/excite you most.
