Finishing our Async Task step 1

I'm currently on the first step of the "finishing our async task" and I can't figure out what could possibly be wrong here:

import android.os.AsyncTask;
import android.os.Bundle;

    public class CustomActivity extends Activity {

    public String mStatus;

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        CustomAsyncTask task = new CustomAsyncTask();

    protected void updateStatusLabel() {

    protected class CustomAsyncTask extends AsyncTask<Object, Void, String> {   
        protected String doInBackground(Object... params) {
            // Imagine this is some code to do some work
            return "Done!";
    protected void onPostExecute(String result){
