Don't get stuck on this.
This. That's what I meant by not overthinking.
By saying standing closer I don't mean that you have to hafvolley everything or that you should stand so close that you can't execute a normal forehand motion. But when the ball comes a little closer like alot of times in this video, move up to it instead of moving back a little (sometimes) and letting it bounce twice.
All of this just to say that you could improve way more by moving better than by thinking about minor details of your FH motion.
