The Ape Theory

Think of yourself as an ape and give that ape the task you want to do.

Example, how will you make an ape play minecraft

1. Simplify Minecraft. Add swiping for movement instead of joystick. Add touches for breaking stuff.

2. Give a mini tutorial: Break the task into very small chunks and give some dopamine after completing each task. Example:

Learnt moving -> Peanuts -> Learnt Breaking -> Peanuts -> Learnt Hunting -> Peanuts

3. Make that task the most rewarding. Don't let that ape discover tasks more fun.

4. Do it in a specific place & time inside a room, not a forest.
