Hello...I'm thinking of applying for a manager position but hesitate because not sure I'm ready or that my skin is thick enough. Anyway, I'm interested in finding resources for new managers that might help me determine whether I am willing to take on this new challenge now. I saw a similar thread but it was back in 2007 so I am wondering if there have been any recent resources in particular that you would recommend.

How much time do you spend each week or month budgeting, tracking spending, thinking about your money, paying bills, etc.? These are tasks that I hate, and I , therefore, do not dedicate enough time to do them. Right now money comes in (paychecks are automatically deposited into my checking and savings accounts) and money goes out (bills are paid automatically by my banks and I spend cash and use my debit card). However, I'm not tracking everything I spend (I know that I should be), and I'm not budgeting for the future. I have a (very) small savings, but basically live paycheck to paycheck. I know that tracking spending and budgeting are the way out of this trap, but I'm loathe to get started (again--I've tried before), because of how much time I anticipate it will take. If you are tracking spending and budgeting on a regular (weekly?) basis, how much time does this activity take in order to have a clear picture of your finances and adequately plan for the future? Thanks in advance for your replies.

Often, when I disagree with, or I'm arguing with someone, they'll ask me "Why are you so angry?"

Thanks!
