According to the professorâ€™s philosophy, the antidote to envy is oneâ€™s own work, always oneâ€™s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it.

(A) oneâ€™s own work, always oneâ€™s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it
(B) always work; because you donâ€™t think about it or assess it, you just do it
(C) always oneâ€™s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it
(D) not to think or assess, but doing oneâ€™s own work
(E) neither to think about oneâ€™s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it

Please correct me if I am wrong here. To maintain parallelism I will go with the option "A".

The best & short version of this will be "D" if it is written like "not to think or assess, but to do one's own work" to maintain parallelism but "D" does not have a correct parallel structure.

So IMO the answer is "A" though it is long.
