Precommitment and theosis

Mark Sisson discusses precommitment and The Odyssey here.

Precommitment – setting things up beforehand to increase chances of success – is an important tool in theosis – improving your habits of thought.

You can see this technique being used in the beginning of the Gospels – Jesus goes out into the wilderness. Why? To remove distractions. This is analogous to Sisson’s example of creating an environment where there is no WiFi available.
