    What is the construction of this sentence?

    You should as little wallow in self-complacency as take rash action in pursuit of unsubstantial outcome.

    I found this quote in a quote book. It is anonymous.

    But I don't understand the construction.

    It means that both of these things are bad and you should avoid them.
