I am in a situation I'm sure many of you have dealt with, and I would truly appreciate input on: my boss is the type that will toss random things at me to do throughout the day. This is no problem, however, he is a severe micro-manager, a workaholic, not very organized, doesn't have a great memory, and doesn't generally think more than a couple of minutes into the future. Everything he comes up with, even if I'm still in the middle of the last thing, becomes an immediate priority. As a result, I am constantly putting out fires or dealing with the current "critical thing". (Which is rarely, by the way, actually critical. These things tend to fall mainly in the "if I never did them nothing would really happen" category.) All of this makes it extremely difficult to implement any kind of system for getting any work done. I know this is exactly the sort of thing GTD is supposed to address, but he has no interest in it. What do you do if the real problem is the boss? Short of finding another job, how have the rest of you dealt with difficult bosses? (In particular the micro-management?)
