There are so many things to learn in chess to be good, but I will just post the basic chess maxim, if you based your play on this chess maxim, you will win more games, and it will improve your play.

These general chess principles are not absolutely certain rules, infallible in every case, but rather a sort of general guide. Good players follow them and it takes an expert to know when to deviate from them.

In the opening we should emphasize:

1. Rapid and solid development, avoiding the creation of any permanent weakness. It follows that if through your development you induce your opponent into creating any such weakness, so much the better. The development should aim at the control of the centre, either through immediate possession of it by the pawns, or by the long-range action of the pieces.
2. Do not move the same piece twice before full development has taken place.
3. Avoid loss of material with out full compensation.

In the Middle game:
1. Co-ordinate the action of your pieces.
2. Control of the centre is essential to a successful attack against the king.
3. Direct and violent attacks against the king must be made en masse, with full force, to ensure their success. The opposition must be overcome at all cost; the attack cannot be broken off, because that generally means defeat.
4. 4. Other things being equal, any material gain, no matter how small, means success.
5. Position comes first; material next. Space and time are complementary factors of position.
6. If the game will go to an ending for a decision, consider the type of ending to come before exchanging pieces.

In the ending:
1. Time increases in importance in the endings.
2. Two bishops are better than two knights.
3. A bishop is generally better than a knight, but not always.
4. Rook and bishop are generally better than a rook and knight.
5. Queen and knight are generally better than queen and bishop.
6. Pawns are strongest when in line with each other.
7. When the opponent has a bishop it is generally better to have your pawns on squares of the same colour as your opponent’s bishop. Whenever you have bishop, weather the opponent also has one or not, keep your pawns on squares of opposite colour to that of your own bishop.
8. In endings of one or two minor pieces the king should generally be marched forward towards the centre of the board.

Chess is love by a lot of people for its deepness, there are many strategic and tactical possibilities that you need to consider in a game of chess. That's why in classical games of chess, each opposing players are given 2 or even 3 hours time allotment. But there are fast chess matches where each player is given 15 or 5 minutes. But compare to classical chess, the quality of fast chess games are not on par with classical matches.

If you don't have patience pre, then probably chess is not for you. Do you play online? If you play online chess, then I suggest play opponents who have 1800 rating and above. The moves of a strong player will give you something to think about. Also strong players who have a positional advantage that have seen the complete picture of a winning plan moves fast! Or probably why not read more about chess strategies, and tactics? It will give you more insight on chess. I suggest you buy the books of “Yasser Seirawan”, they are all enjoyable to read. His books are the ones that makes me appreciate chess. It's the book that taught why chess is great.

For your focus, just bare in your mind to never forget to look at your opponents last move, no matter how unsound it maybe.

here is the basic answer to your question, why do you lose in the first place or what did you do wrong that you lost? if you determine that, then you know which part of your game or your opponent's game you need to work on ! 8)
