People who work in administrative jobs, or in a managerial position, or in a bank are more likely to dream of this as it is engrained into their profession.
If you do work in an environment where you are constantly using numbers and calculating figures, your brain might just be reflecting your day’s events into your dream world, meaning these problems do not need to cause as much concern for you.
As soon as you start to doubt yourself, your mind will get flooded with negative thoughts. The best course of action is to drive forwards and remain confident, so others will see you as a competent leader. Having a big responsibility is a great honor, and you have been appointed this responsibility because you are deserving of it, remember that before you begin to doubt yourself.
If you were delivered this by your girlfriend/boyfriend, perhaps you feel too controlling over them. Your brain may have picked up on issues in your subconscious, which your conscious mind is yet to become aware of.
If you have been handed the quota on a piece of paper, this can mean your issues with control have already begun to overrun into your private life. Paper can also signify secrecy, which entails you to have misfortune in the future. Secrets lead to the build up of emotions in the brain, and if they build up too much and become too heavy, they could cause deep psychological problems.
A quota in real life signifies structure and planning. Often people will dream of being delivered a quota when they have an upcoming project to complete and are concerned it will not be up to standards.
Dreaming of a quota suggests that you have become misguided, and are throwing yourself off balance because you feel out of control. The way to fix this is to understand why.
A quota is a measurable number of something, e.g. people, places, or words. Usually, a quota will specify the amount required, but this can also be a guideline, or a minimum/maximum.
