Practice every day and you will learn to focus. Learn to continue on when you miss a letter. 

CW comes easy to some and hard to others. I knew one ham who struggled mightily for months and in the end his determination made him a decent operator. I taught code to one ham who learned it in three short sessions yet after passing his Technician exam never worked code. And I taught code to a 7 year old girl who learned all 26 letters in one 20 minute session. Me, I was somewhere in the middle with a month of work needed to pass the Novice 5 WPM exam.

Here's a resource I'm using now to build speed:

I'm listening to the quotes a couple of times, then going back and seeing what the actual quotes were on the quote of the day page. Then I listen again, maybe a couple of times. It seems to be helping.

Do not try to learn in order ie a,b,c,d,e... try e,i,s,h,5 t,m,o,0 etc soon you will make words then sentences.
Trying to learn in order will ruin a person. (Taught cw in the military - age dated -hi) Notice the first series was all dits? . .. ... .... ..... you can now send 5 shes
You'll get there.

I've been learning the Koch method through an Android app called KMT Pro.  It's great!  I've been practicing 15-20 minutes at lunch...you start with 2 letters and write down which letters you hear.  When I can copy with 95% success I add another character. It's amazing what I've learned in just a few months.  I also picked up a key and oscillator so I can practice what I've been learning.  Good luck!!
