I solder the components in a slightly different fashion.  I usually solder the centrally located components first and then work my way outward.  This gives me a chance to more easily anchor down a component to the board while soldering (such as using a heat sink clip).  Also, for me, soldering components center to the periphery makes it easier to get the soldering iron tip closer to the component being soldered with less or no interference from nearby components already on the board.
