Brenda, I'm not an accountant, but I run a budget of $5M+ for work.
I have a liberal arts degree, but I'm sensible with money and planning. To me, running a business account is not unlike your personal finances, just with a lot more zeros behind the initial number.
While there are deadlines, they are usually communicated some time in advance, and there's a lot of flexibility and built-in job tools that help in the reporting. Where we lack is in forecasting, so we've devised Excel spreadsheets and summaries for the executive briefings.
It's an art, more than a science, and I do enjoy it. I like taking scarce resources and stretching them. At its best, budgeting and accounting can be about funding your priorities, and making excellent choices with the scarce resources at hand. It's satisfying.
So yes, I'd say accounting could be a very good job. As can Human Resources. It's funny how many people THINK they know that accounting = math (you have tools to do the calculating, so it's more about accuracy and detail orientation); and HR = conflict (usually it's more about writing good job cards, paying people reasonably to limit turnover, and investing in assessment and training).
When you get into management, you do need to be able to stand your ground and explain your positions. So more than anything, I think public speaking skills and conflict resolution training/communication training has been useful.
FTR, I work for a nationally-known university, and starting salaries for budget analysts/HR analysts run ~ $45K. If you're gifted, and willing to supervise, you can make $75-$100K with 5+ years of experience. And the benefits are good.
