'Push the envelope' nghĩa là tiệm cận, hoặc vượt qua giới hạn điều gì có thể (approach or extend the limits of what is possible).

Ví dụ
Mayor Rahm Emanuel promised to “push the envelope” to prevent passengers from carrying concealed weapons aboard party buses after three semi-automatic weapons were discovered on an overcrowded party bus last weekend.

"There are things where that have allowed me to push the envelope a little bit whether it's jogging or doing some other stuff on the treadmills, and things like that," Mariota said. "For me, that's my next benchmark."

“It’s a scary and confusing time in our country and we just felt like we wanted to make other people laugh right now,” Messing added. “And also continue to do what Will & Grace always did, which was to push the envelope, take chances and be a little bit outrageous.”
