Lessons From The C4 Ranch
Producing More Than We Consume
By Dr. Glenn Fox, C4 Foundation Chief Science Officer
My Mom had a saying that each day’s challenge was to “produce more than we consume.” Turns out, Mom was right: creativity has great benefits for children and adultsand helps our longevity

And it is a two-pronged approach: we can make a point to adjust what we produce, and also what we consume. We consume information that we read, watch and hear. We also consume other’s creative expression through music, art, books, and performance. So we should be careful, particularly during the quarantine times, of what we watch how what we consume is affecting our overall mood and health. 

And maybe more importantly, we can focus on what we produce — this is where the FROG program seeks to strengthen our SEAL families. We can produce in any number of ways — a good workout, a helpful conversation, landscaping, etc. We can also produce and create physical things using whatever means we have around us: pens, papers, food in our kitchen, dusty guitars in our closets, fabrics and sewing needles, whatever. Truly any form of creativity will contribute to our mental health and well being, particularly if we create and share with others.

What’s more, creativity is much more than physical products. We can create physical acts by going outside and enjoying nature, and we can create love itself. We can create a welcoming workplace and family home by telling people how much we are grateful to them, showing our thanks by writing thank you notes, keeping a daily journal of things we are looking forward to doing. At the end of the day, using what we consume to produce fun and happiness is what it is all about.

SEAL Family Testimonials
Although Summer of 2020 has been a challenging one thus far, we were still able to host SEALs and their families at the C4 Ranch. Below is a testimonial from one of our SEAL families.
We had such a great time at the C4 ranch! Tim and C3 were great hosts the first night and we had a good time catching up and telling stories while grilling. We also got to watch the best sunset we’ve seen in years at Orlando’s Point. The next day, we took the boys (14yo and 12yo) fishing in the two fishing ponds and caught a ton of fish- including a 6 lb bass in the deep water pond. Tim showed us all of the good spots the day before and got us setup with the rods and gear. Spent the rest of the day exploring around in the ATVs and letting the boys get up close to with the Watusi Cattle and horses. That night we grilled again and sat around the fire pit doing s’mores with the boys. Our final morning, we got up early to get eggs from the chicken coup for breakfast and then hit the road back to San Diego. The visit was such a good time! Very relaxing and felt like we had the whole place to ourselves as a family. Lots of good memories made and the boys are already asking to go back! Thanks to the C4 Foundation, C3, Tim, Nick, Brooke, and Rowlynda for hosting us! The cabin and main house are a wonderful tribute to Chuck - Very glad to know that future generations of NSW will get to experience this place and honor his legacy. -The Garretts
