Well, I'm somewhat smart...but my grades in school would show otherwise. I've narrowed my problem down to 3 basic principles; Organization, Disipline, and Focus. Are there any mental exercises that I can do to increase my ability to do these things?

train nen, the concentration of the mind.

first start with "ten", which is where you concentrate on and visualise a single point to find yourself and your goal. "zetsu", or "toungue", is expressing your goal, either by spoken word or simple thought or writing. "ren", the will, is your desire to reach that goal. by combining all previous excersizes you will be able to perform "hatsu", the action.

Sounds interesting enough to give it a shot!

But when you think about it, it sounds very truthful.

I have a problem focusing because I have ADHD and I don't take medicine for it, I refuse to. I kinda have it under control, but I do space out at times. I just sit in front of every class so that I'm look at the tutor the whole time.
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

Why don't you just get medicine for your ADD. Pop some adderall and get to studying.

First off, meds for ADD are RX only, yes? Meaning I need to get diagnosed first. My parents refuse to take me to get diagnosed. I've thought I had ADD for...2 years now? I also think that I'm bipolar and I have yet to be diagnosed for that.

They should really take you to get diagnosed, don't try to diagnose things on your own.

I used to have trouble focusing but I think that was a Psychological thing because now that I like my lessons (started college this year) I don't have the problem anymore. It's hard to care when you're in non-voluntary education because you have no perspective on your future.

What the hell is ADD? I first found this under Boxxy's video. Is it some kind of hyperactivity? Or some slight mental problem?

If you were Bipolar Type I, you'd know. If you were Bipolar Type II, you might not know for sure but you'd have a decent idea.

The only thing I can come up with is just to do puzzles and stuff. That or break your work up into a bunch of bursts of work.

This is true. I had a harder time focusing then, now that I'm in uni it's been better.

I recommend you get some drugs, dudette. I got ADHD as well, and the drugs help A LOT. It's really amazing how much they help.

Get conerta though, ritalin sucks.

Once again, the drugs do help. In my case, at least.

ADHD is stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, which is hyperactivity plus the inability to focus and concentrate on something for more than a few minutes. ADD is the same, just without the hyperactivity part. ADD and ADHD are often confused with eachother, so the dude probably meant that Boxxy had ADHD.

Study taoism.

Start meditating by doing breathing exercises. Before you know it you'll have some sort of clarity.

Think of your mind as a monkey, running around mad. Now try to train that monkey to eat calmly from the palm of your hand.

There is also research that show diet and environment can effect mental focus, and the poor diet of americans contributes to ADD.

Have you ever heard the expression "easier said than done?"

Focus is the result of self discipline. Don't let over done expressions control your life. You are the only one that can provide the "focus" that you seek. Start by setting yourself very simple attainable tasks. Add more as you get in the habit of working.

Of course it's easier to say things than actually do them. That's what willpower is for. Find your inspiration to work harder. If you don't have one, then you are an empty human being.
