(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

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...

(A)

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.
did you try any of them?
