(A) one’s own work, always one’s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it --- thinking , assessing but simply doing -// and correct

(B) always work; because you don’t think about it or assess it, you just do it --- a subordinate clause after semi - colon is ungrammatical

(C) always one’s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it -----thinking, or assessing but simply do it -- not//

(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work –--to think to assess but doing --- not//

(E) neither to think about one’s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it. –-----To think, to assess, doing -- not//

Parallelism.

In E, "it" doesn't have antecedent.

VOTE 4 A.
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. TOO WORDY, REDUNDANT AND ANNOYING BUT SEEMS CORRECT.
(B) always work; because you don’t think about it or assess it, you just do it. "YOU" SOUNDS UGLY, MAINLY WHEN IT COMES FROM A PHILOSOPHER. + BECAUSE CAN'T STAND FOR ITS OWN.
(C) always one’s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it NT PRALLEL-THINK -DOING
(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work NOT PARALLEL-THINK-DOING
(E) neither to think about one’s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it. NOT PARALLEL -THINK-DOING

doesn't 'it' refer to 'work' in E?
