In the before picture below, you can see that in this kitchen, the spacing around the window is uneven. One one side, there is a sliver of wall but on the other, the molding runs right up against the cabinetry. Tile is therefore required on only one side of the window. You need to carefully plan your time placement prior to starting to lay it. Since you will be laying partial tiles to the side of the window, there will be joints in that area. For continuity, you also want to avoid joints and any tile slivers on that side all the way up to the ceiling.
In the project below, I found the centre point of the wall above the window (between the two cabinets) and used the centre as a starting point and tiled out in either direction from there. In that way, I could control the size of the tile that was placed along the edge of the wall, making sure that there were no unsightly slivers there.
