Default RCA to 3.5mm jack

Quick question:

Is it a dumb thing to assume you can just use a converter cable between RCA jack (phono connector)

The centre of the phono or RCA jack goes to the tip of the jack plug, (right hand channel) and if stereo, the tip of the other phono plug goes to the ring of the jack plug.
The screens are connected together on the ground connection or sleeve of the 3.5mm jack plug.

Tip - ring - sleeve = left signal - right signal - common ground
