Here are a few:
:
1) Know exactly what you will allow through and what traffic your system(s) produce
2) understand if you can white- or black-list ISPs, countries, traffic types
3) Aim for as few rules as possible, have business owners for each rule
4) Review rules regularly
5) review all logs to tweak rules to remove chatter / false positives
6) Understand any rate limiting capabilities and understand how to adjust them in the event of future traffic growth or how to decrease them in the event of an attack
7) Keep device patched up-to-date

Get the CIS Cisco Firewall benchmark from the Center for Internet Security: http://cisecurity.org/en-us/?route=downloads.benchmarks. the latest version is 2.2.0 and it is a free download. It includes best practices for firewall management and configuration, use it as the basis for creating the policy.
