The more he put into it, the smaller it got.

Is 'it' a conventional container? Is who he is relevant (profession, home country, physical attribute?)?
Is what he is putting into it something physical? Holes?

So he put holes into an object, reducing it's size? Or more like cuts? Relevant what object? Is he shooting at it? Do pieces of it fall of because of the holes, making it smaller?

Foulglory, that was my next guess.

What I meant is, did he put more effort into some work that he did, to make the pile of work smaller or something along these lines?

So the object itself is concrete and physical (you can touch it, hold it, taste it, etc.)? But what he puts into it is abstract (like 'effort')?

Does he use the Force? :P

SO, someone is putting some physical (?) and tangible (?) substance (?) or object (?) into an unusual (?) but tangible (?) container. The more of the substance ( or object ) is used, the smaller container gets, right?
Or is it a word-play puzzle that hinges on pronouncing the whole phrase?

Is it something like: the more you put into a hole in the ground, the smaller the hole gets?

"tangible - perceptible by touch"

For example, light is physical ( it can be detected by living organisms and by tools, and can be measured ) but not tangible ( you cannot take a handful of it ). Similar argument can be used for wind, vacuum, gravity, and the like. I was trying to narrow down what the "thing" and the "container" could be.

SPOILER.

Exactly the wording I'd use.
