To get complete success or failure; to take the chance of destroy oneself in trying to succeed

Etymology:

  • "Do" refers to get something completed. However, in this expression, "Die" doesn't necessarily mean that your life will end if you don't achieve what you commence to do. If you make a do-or-die effort, you're working hard to get success, without considering the obstacles in the way.
