comment “All but” idiom has two meanings?
@Doeser Correct. In my answer, I say that "the subject of the idiom is as close to being described by the adjective as it can be without being completely and accurately described by that adjective". In other words, "it's as close as you can get to how you described it without it actually being how you described it". :)

Don't you mean that it is a construction on which you rely? ;)

comment Do “willingness” and “effort” imply different things?
It's more like "I want to try to achieve that goal" vs. "I have performed actions toward that goal", but your point is essentially correct. ;)
