Definitions of  effort on the Web:

    * attempt: earnest and conscientious activity intended to do or
accomplish something; "made an effort to cover all the reading
material"; "wished ...
    * use of physical or mental energy; hard work; "he got an A for
effort"; "they managed only with great exertion"
    * campaign: a series of actions advancing a principle or tending
toward a particular end; "he supported populist campaigns"; "they
worked in the cause of world peace"; "the team was ready for a drive
toward the pennant"; "the movement to end slavery"; "contributed to
the war effort"
    * deed: a notable achievement; "he performed a great deed"; "the
book was her finest effort"

Ok... what exactly is wrong with my usage of "effort"?
