    #10 - A Different Kind Of Beach Volleyball Career Strategy

    #10 - A Different Kind Of Beach Volleyball Career Strategy

    Is there a different way of going about becoming a better beach volleyball player than what most players do?

    There definitely is, and this episode has in a sense two different missions: The first one is to invite you to see new possibilities in terms of how to gain new skills and become a better player, and the second one is for you to understand the background of the Learn Beach Volleyball Fast project better - so that you and all other beach volleyball players can gain more value from it in the future.

    #7 - The Personal Development Concept Most Beach Players Miss (And pay big time for!)

    #7 - The Personal Development Concept Most Beach Players Miss (And pay big time for!)

    Welcome to the first solo-episode on the Learn Beach Volleyball Fast podcast! When starting this podcast, I wanted to create lots of different types of episodes, and this type of episode was definitely a part of the plan.

    In some of these solo-episodes, I will follow a simple formula: personal development concept + beach volleyball = episode idea. Basically I will take lessons from the personal development/business/self help/psychology space and apply them specifically to beach volleyball.

    This will lead to two things:
    1. An interesting way to get introduced to ideas that can help you in your life in general.
    2. Next level beach volleyball advice. Sometimes, about the game, sometimes about how to think about your development as a player, sometimes something else.. No matter what, this stuff is here to help you learn beach volleyball faster.

    This first solo episode will be about a concept called opportunity cost, and how doing things that are good for you can still destroy you because these things are at the same time hindering you from doing something that would be even better for you. Hope you enjoy!

    And since this is my first solo-episode, I probably have tons to learn for future episodes. So don’t hestitate to send me feedback so I can make better episodes for you guys, either to alex@learnbeachvolleyballfast.com or in the Youtube comment section for this episode.

    Youtube comment section: https://youtu.be/pwPbGlp2fqw (Go here for leaving feedback, but also to read and share your own examples of opportunity cost in action within beach volleyball.. Together with discussions we can make the learning moments from this episode even bigger!)
