Why can't I focus on anything?

I've had this problem since I was a kid. In school, I could never focus on whatever subject the teacher was talking about. I can't focus on what people are talking to me about. I try to learn new things (coding, game development, art, etc) but I just can not focus for the life of me. I hate how unproductive I am and I want to change but I don't know whats wrong.

    Next time a person is talking to you ask them to speak slowly or explain in details. 

    I suggest you read The Six Thinking Hats method by Ed De Bono and Lateral Thinking. This may help you to focus on your thinking.

    You could be suffering from a neurological disorder. See your local GP for a diagnosis.

    It seems you have some issue going on.

    See your doctor first and see what he recommends.

    Talking with a counselor might help; ask them about attention disorder and try to avoid meds if possible; counselor:  https://www.hopefortheheart.org

    You have attention deficit disorder. You have a late diagnosis but many adults realize this later in life.
