The new concept that says ‘Do it before you die’ has nothing motivational impact in it as in the phrase "do or die" does have. The later one is more effective for if you cannot accomplish a task you will have to face prosecution and death is never wished for. On the contrary “do it before you die” has a practical value is not so much imperative for we all are to accomplish our jobs before we die. Hence the concept “Do or die" is more acceptable and more forceful as well. How do you take it as? Please share Rajib.

Hello my friend krajibg Ji, I think you are very much right. "Do or die" is more effective in nature and also it is positive way of thinking, on other hand, latest concept is less appealing and has no hope of survival after doing any task. It allows one to die, after completing the task. May God bless you and have a great time.

Hi MGBU, no this does not allow one to die after completion of the task.It says that you are to do or die and if you do you are not to die. thanks for responding.

The way I see it is that I have a list of things I want to do before I die and I guess I'll get around to them whenever. But the choice to be happy and to care for my body and spirit is a matter of 'do it or you die' so that one leaves me a dismal choice and I may as well look after myself. You are right 'do or die' is much more forceful and motivating, that's for sure!

Do or die means that you have no option but to die if you don't complete the task. Like in a ransom kind of thing, do bring your money other wise your *loved one* would die. That is do or (the other person would) die. The other case, Boss says, "Do this task or resign?". You can not have an option of do it before you resign, do you? No, so either do it or leave the job. I think do or die is more penetrative than do it before you die!

"Do or die" is much more motivating! But I have adopted the "do it before you die" philosophy. When I die, I don't want to leave anything undone or wish I had done something that I missed doing.

Oh yes..I agree. Do or die is definately more forceful. I think it is something we are determined to do no matter the consequences. If doing something before we die..it is something there is no consequence to..it's just something we want to do before passing.

"Do or die" maybe similar to by hook or by crook. No matter what you have to achieve something. Do everything or failed. While "do it before you die", you seemed to have all the time to prepare and accomplish something, betting a deadline.
