copying for accuracy and forms.

The essential thing to do to improve the basic skills of drawing I've heard a lot was drawn from real-life or random objects.
I've started copying random cars from google images and objects on my table.
Throughout the process, I was overwhelmed when I saw an object. I didn't know where to approach it, how to think about it, and which line I should put down first. I was busy putting down the random lines I saw on the image, shifting my eyes up and down from the image to my drawing. I didn't know what I was doing. not only was the result far from accurate, but the shape and the proportion were also entirely off. the line was all over the place and I made the "2023 Nissan Z" look like a "loaf of bread".
I think just doing it repeatedly without knowing what I'm doing will not get me anywhere near the next step.
I wonder what am I doing wrong.
I'm not trying to copy to make a good picture. I want to know what I'm doing, and I don't feel like I know what I'm doing at all.
