We should focus on it. VS. We should be focusing on it.

Is there a nuance between them? Thank you so much in advance.

There could be some difference. The first could suggest that there is a need to focus on it in the future. The second could express regret at a lack of present focus.

Only context can make the intended meaning clear.
