(A) one’s own work, always one’s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it - though always one’s own work appeared redundant for me, I opted A as I consider it the best.
(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 - not parallel
(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work - not parallel
(E) neither to think about one’s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it not parallel.

I think in B we should have a noun here "the antidote to envy is..."
the antidote of envy is always work - doesn't sound good, at least infinitive 'to work' or 'the work' should be here to make it a noun.I am not sure whether I am explaining correctly or not. It just seemed to me like this.
A seems wordy, but it has paralellism with no errors.
