"Going the extra mile" means that you have gone above and beyond what was required of you. This originates from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, when He said, "Whoever forces you to go one mile with you, go with him two." Thus, you are fulfilling Jesus' commands by "going the extra mile" beyond what is required. (Mt 5:41)
