What does this "it" in "getting it" refer to? "What you ask for" or " more frustration, more grieft, more demands on your time" ?
I think the former, but it's confusing conidering the whole context.
62)Many of us spend a great deal of time wishing things were different. We dream of a "better job," les of this, and more of that. Sometimes, the things we spend our energy loging for improve the quality of our life. Other times, however, the very things we wish for are hardly worth the effort. For this reason, I suggest you should be really careful what you ask for. My goal is to remind you to carefully think through what you want, because you just might end up getting it, which is often more than you bargained for - more frustration, more grief, more demands on your time.

Re: getting it
The "it" refers to "what you ask for". There is an old proverb: Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.
