I keep trying to apply PSP, but I find I get distracted so much that I'm unable to keep track of my metrics and how close I come to estimates (mostly, my boss pulls a time estimate out of his butt).

One of the key elements of PSP is to record what you do each day in a little diary. One of the biggest ways you can improve your estimation skills is:

1 - make estimates

2 - keep track of how close those estimates came to reality

3 - compare what you did right/wrong so you can do less of the wrong and more of the right.
