When Q > K, that means that you start with the product first, and then the reaction will start to occur to create more reactants. However, the reaction will never create more reactants than is required for the equilibrium. That's what Dr. Lavelle meant by "not overshooting the equilibrium". You won't get a case where you start with a forward reaction, pass the equilibrium, and then have to have a backwards reaction in order to get back to the equilibrium.
