The satisfaction or pleasure derived from an experience is not solely dependent on the height of the peak, but also on the height of the peak relative to the baseline. Increasing both the baseline and the peak does not lead to increased pleasure. Increasing dopamine levels may make one excited and motivated, but the motivation is short-lived. Optimizing the peak to baseline ratio is a better approach to enhance satisfaction and pleasure.
