Ep. 15: Ethos Part 1 – Die Living

The ethos at the School of Man is like our battle cry. When the “founding fathers” of SoM were putting it together, they spent a lot of time thinking about who is going to read and live this ethos. To some, the ethos is a prayer, and to others, it’s a lifestyle.

Today is the first of three parts where Cole will be unpacking the SoM ethos. We’ll be hearing the first paragraph of the ethos today, which has a strong focus on knowing who you are along with treating every day like it’s your last.
