Only move your highest corner tile when forced to, then immediately return it.
Now, there will be cases when the corner will be replaced with a small tile but that doesn't mean it's the end of the game. It will just make your position a little weaker and decrease your chances of getting a very high score. Nevertheless, getting a 2048 should not be a problem if you follow the above steps.
