Here's my cool tip:

   Delete your .emacs!

This means that you can go to a new machine, run Emacs on it, and it
works just the same as on your old machine!  No more confusion over
non-default keybindings, unusual settings for variables, bizarre mode
hooks, etc.  And when you find a problem you know it's really to do with
Emacs and not with some "cool" trick you copied out of someone else's
.emacs without understanding it.
