Common sense. If you don't have that then no one can help you. When installing any apps, mod, hack, kernels, roms, etc there will be instructions provided and clearly stating the risk of bricking. If you have what it takes to take the risk and know what you are doing, should your device not brick.
But even so, due to whatever reason, say your device bricked. you should have a nandroid backup lying around, and enough knowlege to unbrick your device.

Now, wait for others to post a huge list of tips, It might be long, so have fun reading..

... Just don't try anything which is not meant for your device.

And you know, I have got a softbrick and bootloops so many times.
