According to the professor’s philosophy, the antidote to envy is one’s own work, always one’s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it.
(A) one’s own work, always one’s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it
(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
(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work
(E) neither to think about one’s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it

This one is tough...
I would finally go for B

(A) one’s own work, always one’s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it -> seems too wordy, and the repetition doesn't seem so good too :)
(B) always work; because you don’t think about it or assess it, you just do it -> I think it is a shorter way to say the same idea. ok.
(C) always one’s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it -> not parallel and I also don't like the use of one's own work, I found it weird.
(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work -> out of scope
(E) neither to think about one’s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it -> complex and wordy

One more vote for B coz it is concise and grammatically correct
All other options are too wordy or meaningless
