Copernicus wasn’t an astronomer. At least not by training. He also wasn’t a mathematician – by training. By training, Nicolas Copernicus was a canon (church law expert) of the Catholic Church. And he collected rents on church-owned property. A lawyer and rent-collector.

But, his passion was to decode the heavens, so he became a self-taught mathematician and amateur astronomer. Today, we know him for his passion, not his day job. What is your passion? What are you known for?
