Though I am not qualified to comment on this subject matter, I am trying to put some of the points that i have heard from seniors.
recently I was hearing from HH Bhakthi Vinod Swami Maharaj at Sri Sri Lakshmi Narashima temple in bangalore where he was explaining about the struggle in chanting and doing devotional service. during the class he asked devotees to raise their left hand, then right hand, then asked to hold left hand with right hand and then right hand with left hand. finally he said hold your right hand with right hand!!! hari bol!!! not possible. this is the same situation we all are in now. we need to control the mind and the big problem is that our mind is monitoring all our activities. Soo it is just not possible to control it. This is experienced by Arjuna also as he says in bg that he can control the wind by his arrows but not this mind. While Krishna also acknowledges this in bg saying that certainly it is difficult to control the mind but by continuous practice one can achieve it.
I was in uduipi recently with HG Radheshayam Pr and several other student devotees in a camp where one of the devotee asked what can we do if we have some extra time - chant more rounds or listen to some lectures. then hg RSP told us to listen more lectures of our spiritual master or his representatives as this would increase our convection towards the movement. With all due respects for your dedication in chanting 60 rounds daily, but we are asked by SP to chant 16 rounds minimum daily without fail. You may consider hearing more lectures of your SM.
Also I have heard from my beloved spiritual master HH Radhanath Swami Maharaj in many of his lectures emphasizing on the aspect of 'trinaadapi sunechane tarorapi ....' in order to chant the Holy names constantly we need to follow this in our life.
Lastly, association of devotees is very very important in kc. I myself was disconnected from the movement for almost 4 years without association. Of course, devotees are very merciful and are always ready to help fallen souls and pulled me back. So try to associate with devotees as much as possible.
In the same lecture by HH Bhakthi Vinod Swami Maharaj, for a response to a devotees question that he is always troubled by his mind during chanting and is not able to concentrate, Maharaj responded with humor that 'You are in the right place now. See there are soo many of us who have difficulty like you and that we have formed a club which is ISKCON'.
