The Rams are currently sitting in fourth position in the Championship standings, 10 points below second place and 11 points above sixth, but Keogh has revealed that with seven games remaining, his side aren't getting ahead of themselves.
The 27-year-old told Rams Player: "The season has gone so quickly. The last couple of months have been hectic because we have been playing a lot of Saturday-Tuesday games, so they are soon ticked off.
"The remainder of the campaign will be sure to go quickly and we have just got to make sure that we keep our standards high, our feet on the ground and pick up as many points as we can.
"We are solely focusing on the next game; Middlesbrough are a strong team and it was a good game when we played them at the iPro Stadium earlier in the season."
Keogh has made 37 appearances for Derby this season.
