Family, Stories No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

When I was eight years old, I remember sneaking into my older brother Robin’s room while he was practicing his speed reading skills on his bed. I’d pull up next to him with a book, meant for someone twice my age, and try my best at speed reading. The problem was I didn’t know 90% […]

Family No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

My dad was born in Pilsen, Czechoslovakia (which at the time was under Germany rule) and lived in Germany through most of his college career before coming to the U.S. His ties back to our European roots are extremely strong. In fact, today he is flying to Europe for a four week trip visiting all […]

Watch Out: “Right” and “So” are the new “Like”

Speaking, Speaking Tips No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

I don’t know if it’s a trend isolated to just the tech geeks, but more and more I’m hearing the the words “right” and “so” being used as filler words like the word “like.” I first noticed it during interviews with the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg. Then, in a recent trip to Austin, my […]

About a year ago my brother’s wife, Suruchi, brought up the idea of doing a big surprise 40th birthday bash for him. At the time, the rest of the brothers were excited, but planning something a year out with my family is next to impossible. Fast forward a year later and over the past weekend, […]

Lingering Self Doubt

Self Insight No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

Several months ago I had a Digital Identity training at Sonoma State University in California. As an added bonus, an investor for my oldest brother’s old company, Goal Tribe, lived near by, so my brother set up a meeting for us.

Hindsight – 09/19/10 – Sunday Softballin

  I accompanied Annie to her ingrual NYC softball game today. Partly to support her, and partly to meet the team. I also got to play, and we won by a lot.  In Chicago we built up an entire friend base through playing sports, and figured the same should work in NY, so we joined […]

Hindsight – 09/18/10 – Alvernia University DFT Training

Today I was working with the student leaders at Alvernia University for their first ever leadership retreat. The setup for the training wasn't that great; low turnout, huge room, early morning, and on campus.  As I said before, I've had good and not-so-good trainings and suspected this one was going to be a bit rough.

ACbert, Family, Hindsight, Traveling No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

I’m flying somewhere 35K feet above Nebraska on my way back to NYC after an extended weekend visiting my brother (Robin), sister-in-law (Suruchi), and their kid. Their little one is almost 1 1/2 years old and due to geographic distances (NYC vs San Francisco) and work schedules, this is the first time I’ve been able to […]
