The phrase presented in the illustration may seem radical, but it effectively communicates the importance of solid planning as a key to success for those who implement it. Whether as novice entrepreneurs, established entrepreneurs, experienced professionals or members of work teams, planning will always be essential.

A good plan allows you to align the various aspects of a project, such as technology, market, finance, regulations, among others, thus optimizing the definition of actions and the allocation of resources.
Among the most significant benefits of a plan are:

– Set clear goals and objectives.
– Define the direction and concentrate resources and efforts.
– Anticipate, mitigate or resolve risks that may arise along the way.
– Foresee and manage the necessary resources in a timely manner.
– Facilitate and strengthen the decision-making process.
– Boost productivity and efficiency, among others.

It is crucial to prevent the planning process from hindering project execution, avoiding “paralysis by analysis”. Some experts suggest that having 70% of the validated information is enough to get started, avoiding inaction due to excessive planning.

Flexibility is another essential feature that a plan must possess during its implementation. It is essential to constantly validate the original plan and adjust it as new information or circumstances not considered in the initial planning stage arise.

The World Economic Forum conducts an extensive global survey annually involving experts from academia, business, government, the international community and civil society. This survey assesses the perception of the greatest risks, in the short and long term, facing the world.

In the most recent survey, 34 risks were identified, of which the 5 considered the most serious in terms of consequences stand out in the illustration.

It is important to note that none of the risks that occupied the first places of importance were of an economic nature.

Respondents’ perceptions show that in the next two years, two of the 5 risks identified as potentially most damaging are related to the potential misuse of technology, the development of technology, and the use of technology in the United States. The other three risks address environmental, social and geopolitical issues, showing significant diversity.

It is notable that, according to respondents, the most critical risks facing the world in 10 years will be of an environmental nature.

It seems that it is perceived that in the next 10 years we will have the capacity to mitigate most of the risks related to technology, economy, society and geopolitical aspects, but not those related to the environment.

The real problem lies not in our ability to address environmental risks, but in the lack of real will to do so, either through lack of information or sheer negligence.

We cannot wait 10 years to see if these predictions come true; It is imperative to start acting now. Governments, universities, companies and above all us, society, must collaborate to ensure a sustainable future with adequate living conditions and the ability to feed future generations.


Nearshoring is the global trend of companies to bring their production closer to their end markets to avoid risks and costs. Mexico is a country that is already registering the interest and arrival of a large number of companies looking to get closer to the largest market in the world.

The possibility that Asian aquaculture companies are going to be part of the nearshoring that is already manifesting itself in Mexico is very real.

Mexican entrepreneurs must be aware of this and prepare for competition, developing more cost-efficient companies and with well-structured and organized marketing strategies.
