You are working for an abusive boss and from your symptoms, you appear to be heading for a mental breakdown. I do not know where you live and what the software job market is like there and your particular job prospects and skills. If I were you, I would seriously consider resigning. Also consider moving to another city where there are more jobs ...

Strive for efficiency above thoroughness. You have limited brain capacity. If it helps, think of it as a currency; spend it wisely. The trick is finding a balance between learning all you can and all you need. Prioritize the things most valuable to your life/career/schooling/whatever and store them in your brain. The other stuff can be referenced as ...

You've already got two answers that seem very good but I think the answer to your concern is rather simple: there's nothing to worry about.

You say that your boss want you to complete this project, and you still get distracted with other work. With the number you gave so far it looks like the deadline you gave will not work out.

Before you start to work on your project, you can try to turn off your phone, this is a good way to avoid being disturbed by other things. Now that you are addicted to games, do not uninstall all of them at one time, which I think is not a good idea. Everything needs a process. Try to uninstall most of them and keep one or two you love most on your computer. ...

The best way to deal with any fear or anxiety is to simply accept it. Know that it's natural and there for a reason. Some people are worried that a contact lens could scratch their cornea, others are worried that it could go back into the eye socket. All of these things can happen but really in the worst case you go to the emergency room or your local ...

If you are free to choose which task you work on, you can time the periods that you work on one task. When you are focused you tend to work longer periods on one task. Just write down what time it is when you start doing something else. If you see a lot of small time blocks getting replaced by larger blocks, you know that your focus increases. This method ...

I recommend Mindfulness meditation. It's a technique where you teach your brain to disregard irrelevant thoughts and stay focused on what's important. Training Mindfulness physically rewires the connections in your brain, which I think would make you less likely to have these fears about examinations. Allocate at least 7 minutes of meditation per day for ...

Focus can be quantified with an attention test. They come in many different forms, for instance questionaires (example) or "computer games" where you are instructed to perform simple tasks as rapidly as possible. Attention tests are sometimes used by scientists, wanting to study the effects of focus enhancing routines, such as Mindfulness meditation.
