Some suggestions: Pick some examples: Who do you consider people that have "achieved something big"? Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Richard Branson? Read their autobiographies and in-depth interviews. Don't pick just one, everybody has their flaws, you need to generalize over multiple people. Pick three main goals in life: Once you feel that you have the potential ...
All the examples you provide involve money. So for you "doing something big" is about making it financially. I guess all the hippy stuff about "leaving a world better than the one you found", "making a contribution", etc, would just be a bonus for you (everybody, when reminded, adds "yeah yeah, that too", because makes you sound sensitive). That's a first ...
You should ask yourself - what do you want to do in your life? What do you love? What matters to you? This is most important part of life. Do what you want to do. If you are happy - that's great.

Do not underestimate the traditional solution. Coffee or tea. It is a proven way to wake you up. But make sure to not over do it. You can use this hours to the less creative tasks. Music can give you some energy. Have some human interaction. One on one meetings for example. You have to talk and that will keep you awake. Even better if you have to walk to ...
Eat less and eat at regular (shorter) intervals. Don't stay hungry for long and then jump into your meals. This will only make you eat more and feel even more drowsy.
not all the food will make you lazy after lunch but carbohydrate do so you should eat less carbohydrate at lunch or break lunch into two meals so you don't eat much at one time
One solution is to be mindful of what (and how much) you eat for lunch. Sugar, fat, and highly processed foods will make your blood sugar spike and increase the sluggishness. Quoting from ‘Food Comas’, Or Why Eating Sometimes Makes You Sleepy: ... the body is a lot more sophisticated than that; it doesn’t respond to food volume alone. What you eat is just ...
You don't explain much of what your tasks include and how you feel about this or whether they are personal of professional matters. But I take it that you don't use your time well enough and/or avoid the tasks (this is normal and nothing to be ashamed of). The reason for this is unknown as you have not shed light on this. I will therefore go through many ...
