spread oneself too thin

Overextend oneself, undertake too many different enterprises. For example, Ashish’s exhausted; what with work, volunteer activities, and social life he’s spread himself too thin. This expression alludes to smearing something (like butter on bread) in such a thin layer that it does not cover the surface.
