(pronounced exactly as it is spelled)

It’s amazing what one vowel can do. Quite the opposite of being “daft,” if one is deft, then he has great skill, artistry and dexterity, either with his hands or in his handling of a situation.

Example: Marco earned a substantial bonus from his bosses at the design firm for his deft management during the unexpected crisis between the city’s inspection department, the general contractor and the developer of the multi-million dollar office complex.
