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
(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
(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work
(E) neither to think about one’s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it

Please, I already have the answer,which I'll post later, so for me the explainations are more important.

I'd go with A.

The other answers, if you plug them in or even read them on their own, aren't optimally phrased:
B-- where did "you" come from?
C-- this would have been correct if "simply to do it" were "simply doing it", but its not
D-- "not to think or assess", as a parenthetical clause, makes it sound as though the antidote is to be braindead
E-- I just don't like it

(A) one’s own work, always one’s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it - IMO CORRECT
(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 - || LISM ERROR
(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work - NOT ||
(E) neither to think about one’s own work nor to assess it,it is always simply doing it - ILLOGICAL

+1 FOR YOU

BETWEEN A & B ,IN B THE CONSTRUCTION LOOKS AWKWARD TO ME
I WILL GO WITH A
