How do you Install Floor Ceramics?

I have installed few floor ceramics in my life time and they all turned very good. Today I finished my bathroom floor ceramics and I said that there must be an easier way of doing this.

The way I always have done it is to start laying the ceramics (with no glue) from the entry door and walk backwards towards the walls leaving the appropriate gap between each tile and doing all my cutting as needed. Prior to that of course I have taken some measurements to assure that all tile cuts by the walls / fixtures are almost even. When Iím close to the wall, I carefully remove some of the tiles I installed so I can step into that space and continue laying the ceramics until all floor is covered.

To glue the ceramics now I reverse the above process. I start by the walls lifting one or two rows of tiles, apply the glue and continue until I reach the door.

Is this the correct way to install floor ceramics?
