Do you think it's redundant to say:

- This is my own work? or is it better just to say - this is my work.

- The jacket is his own? -------------------------- The jacket is his.

What about One's own work?

Plus if One's own work is correct, should it come before ENVY (One's own envy) first to make a parallel sentence.

This is a weird Q.

If "always work" in B is not followed by semi-colon but by comma then I will choose B. If it is semi-colon then this cannot be right because it will create a sentence fragment rather than subordinated clause. If this is the case then I will chose A, because CD & E have parlsm problem (infinitive to mixed with gerund -ing)

This Q is so confusing. I go with B (using POE)

(A) one’s own work, always one’s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it - NOT CORRECT - wordy
(B) always work; because you don’t think about it or assess it, you just do it
(C) always one’s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it - NOT PARALLEL (should be doing)
(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work - NOT PARALLEL (should be to do)
(E) neither to think about one’s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it. - The use of it is weird

A is the best choice. All other choices either have grammar mistakes or do not give same meaning.

(B) changes the meaning of the original sentence, focusing on one's own work is the antidote to envy not any work in general
(C) "simply to do it" does not agree with the tense of "thinking " or "assessing"
(D) to think does not align with "Doing"
(E) to think and to assess does not align with "doing"
