All the drills I have are for the bike. You take five orange cones and set them up in a flat paved area. You make a rectangle that is roughly 20'x40' with a cone at each corner and one in the center of the rectangle. Then you ride around the outside of the narrow side of the rectangle then cross the center next to the center cone then back to the outside essentially doing figure 8's.
Now to practice looking ahead and focusing you look ahead two cones. So if you are at a cone A about to cross through the center of the rectangle you would be looking at the far corner cone C. Keep looking at that cone C until you get to the cone B. Once you get to the cone B you look/focus at the cone D. You keep this going as you continue to do figure 8s around the cones. It is cool how as you are doing this things work great as long as you keep looking ahead. Almost every time you briefly glance down to see if you will miss a cone you end up hitting the cone. You also only continue to do laps as longs as you can do it perfectly, 6 laps is usually enough before taking a break. You do not want to practice bad habits. You also incorporate this drill into other cornering drills with the cones.
To really get this stuff down I suggest taking one of Gene Hamiltons riding camps. www.betterride.net This is one of the things he focuses on and it makes a world of difference,
