I think D...

A: "it" refers to envy or work?
B: again "it" would refer to envy and work.. you dont think about "envy" or assess "envy", you just do "your work".
C: Again "it" also falters on ||ism - "to do it"
D: no "it" in this one and its succinct and clear
E: awkward formation..

Concise is the first reason and second is that is direct and makes sense. :-) Whatever that means...

I think the colon clears up any ambiguity with "it." Furthermore, the original sentence seems to be most parallel: thinking....assessing...doing...

Should be A.
"it" clearly refers to work as pointed out by GMATT

Should be A for ||ism.

Try replacing "it" with "envy", sounds very funny.

Agree with A.
Professor suggest some good reads on philosphy.


The best for me are of J. Krishnamurti's, Khalil Gibran's, and OSHO's.
